[xml] problems with libxml-1.8.17


I notice a couple of problems with libxml-1.8.17 as packaged at

First, ./configure complains that there is no example/Makefile.in.
But I do see example/Makefile.am.

Second, it seems that this package must be built "in place".  This is
a bit inconvenient when building for multiple platforms simultaneously,
as I do for Linux, Tru64, IRIX and Solaris.

I realise libxml-1 is not a high priority for you, but I thought I
would at least bring these to your attention.  I certainly have no
need for the above to get fixed.

Kind regards,
