Re: [xml] Re: libxml2-2.6.11 -- detection of Python in configure

I don't know the answer to that question, but in general it would be 
optimal to ask the Python in question wheere its include files were, 
rather than trying to guess the location.  The apposite function is 

   def get_python_inc(plat_specific=0, prefix=None):
       """Return the directory containing installed Python header files.

       If 'plat_specific' is false (the default), this is the path to the
       non-platform-specific header files, i.e. Python.h and so on;
       otherwise, this is the path to platform-specific header files
       (namely pyconfig.h).

       If 'prefix' is supplied, use it instead of sys.prefix or
       sys.exec_prefix -- i.e., ignore 'plat_specific'.

Would be great to add like this also for the python library. It is
needed to add it to the libxml2mod_la_LIBADD flag for systems where it
is needed to specify the python library when linking this module
(no-undefined symbols allowed on Windows).  Therefore on Cygwin the
libxml2 python module build always fails because of undefined
references because the auto configury doesn't add the needed libpython
to the libxml2mod_la_LIBADD flag.
