Re: [xml] libxml2-2.6.18 on freebsd

Thanks for you help with this, is there anyway I could apply an edit to the *.c files to push this through 
the compiler ?. I have the problem that im about 10000 miles away from the server this week, which means I 
cant do any major work. If I can get this running, I know I can rebuild it properly next week. I have mailed 
the bsd lists to find out if there is a way to resync the libaries or do anything else os related to bring 
this back online.

I tested gcc as mentioned the "hello world" app runs and compiles without any errors.

Thanks again for you help

Well, you should search for _signbit or signbit, since the compiler
may have prepended the _ for a static/private variable.

  there is two __ and that's usually a convention when remapping a
public library (libc in that case) symbol to an internal one or a 
macro in the system includes. 
  The signbit() call is from trio the compatibility library (apparently
the libc is missing some of the "advanced" function libxml2 needs or
well that configure think it is needed). In this case signbit is for
floating point portability for XPath.
