Okay, fixed in CVS.

What I don't quite understand: Why does in libxml require and 
handle libxslt? Libxml can very well be used without libxslt and so can its 
python bindings be used without those of libxslt, no?

  to unify the for both. There is also a nasty problem of
interdependance of the wrapper modules and the shared libraries, as a result
it's better to handle both at the same time...

Also, why does the same handle iconv.dll? Iconv has nothing to do 
with libxml. It is a separate piece of software and it is up to the end user 
to decide wether and how to install that.

  Hum, maybe again a problem related to shared libs dependancies. Basically
the core of the problem is libxml wrapper requiring the libxml2 shared lib
AND the libxslt wrapper also requiring the libxml2 shared lib in the same
execution context, this raise hum ... interesting portability problems.
Maybe it's teh same for iconv, or just taht I was too lazy to try to
separate the issues.
