Is there a way to configure libxml not to do so?

  No. The stripping of \r in \r\n sequences when parsing is mandated by
the XML specification ! And I see no interest in generating them since
the very fist thing a parser will need to do is to remove them again.
If this is really a problem, write your own serializer ...
