libxml2-2.6.16 build errors out on MINGW with MSYS in

Open the file in an editor, go to line 2338, and replace 
"xlattable" with
"unicodetable". It compiles fine afterward. Apparently this 
line of code was
copied from another function in which "xlattable" was the 
name of the function
parameter, and the author didn't think to rename the variable 
when he copied it.

This leads me to believe this particular revision of libxml2 
wasn't even
COMPILED before it was released, let alone tested. Not very 

Apart from Daniels (astonishing polite) answer to that rant
I feel the need to note that this is quite an impudance,
stated from someone who has obvious no idea what an excellent
piece of software he/she is working with (if at all).

Ciao, Markus
