Hello Daniel,

the "./configure" process of libxml2-2.4.19 doesn't
recognize the new MPE platform (MPE/iX 7.0) and breaks
with an appropriate message. Well, that's propably no
problem for anybody else but me 8), but i've tested
that it works with the current version of "config.guess"
(, so it's
maybe a good idea to update that file in libxml2!?
Could be that this will prevent problems with other
"exotic" platforms...

  The auto* tools drive me nuts each time I try to change
anything in them. So I stick with the version provided
with my OS, currently Red Hat 7.2 . I you want to update them
go ahead, you're more courageous than me.

Good joke, i havn't got the foggiest idea about auto* tools :]
I've just replaced the file "config.guess" in libxml2 with the
version provided on the GNU FTP server.

Another, but related thing:
It's been a while that you've asked me for the platform
information for MPE/iX with the prospect that it's maybe
possible to force the enabling of trio in "configure" for
that platform (which is necessary)
Is there a chance that this will be added to forthcoming
versions of libxml2 (It's "hppa1.0-hp-mpeix")?
For the moment i still hack "configure" with a static
NEED_TRIO=1, which is ugly but works...

  Is the enclosed patch working (you will need to rebuild configure) ?

Surprise: I havn't auto* tools on this platform... :)
However, i've applied the patch to the already generated "configure"
(the position is obvious) but it doesn't work since WITH_TRIO is
overwritten later in "configure" where NEED_TRIO is evaluated.
I've fixed the patch (WITH_TRIO -> NEED_TRIO), i guess it was
just a typo. The modified patch is attached.
With NEED_TRIO it works perfect.


Many thanx, Markus
