Re: [xml] libxml as DLL?

Is there any interest in providing a "DLLEXPORT" style define as part

  I don't understand why the existing Windows support is not adequate.
Apparently Igor and Cygwin are shipping libxml2 on Windows as shared library
so where is the problem ?

I see that the win32 directory uses the command-line compiler to
pre-process libxml2.def.src into a .def file.  I suppose we can try
using a .def file, but this is not necessary for the other libraries
we build.

I'll see what we can accomplish by using the .def file.
