Ah, yes, thats another thing: libxml needs libz (the Zlib compression
library). Even if you tell configure not to, it still refers to it.

  I have seens and received in the history of libxml maybe a dozen
different patches to detect and link this damn library.
None of them ever worked everywhere. If you have and can test a sections which allows to do this and works:

  - on linux Red Hat
  - on linux SuSE
  - on Solaris
  - on BSD
  - on OSF1
  - on HP-UX
  - on SGI

Then I will be very glad to receive such a piece of code !
Usually when it finally works everywhere else it ends up breaking
on SuSE, no idea why !

Well, we contributed the last set of zlib patches to
I've sent mail to Jakob for his config.status and config.log files. We
currently have no problems on Solaris, OSF1, HP-UX, or SGI. If anyone
has problems *now*, speak up so we can fix them.
