similar to the current approach taken for the trio library. Except I
will be very tempted to use the local copy even on Linux. The point
being that if for some reason we don't embed the latest version users
still have the option to use their version they know work for them in
their specific environment.
  I'm fine doing the mess of embedding the local copy and adding the
special configure option if you provide the configure lookup and the
ldtl based version.  And if we can't pass the flags to xmlModuleOpen
then too bad but it should not stop us from trying that approach.

ok, i can do this. you're not suggesting we awk ltdl to 
change the exported symbol names though (i think). while creative, 
i cringe at the thought of doing that.

  Don't worry, I will likely use sed or patch instead :-)
