I have a question regarding the license for libxml2 and the licenses
for other libs it links to. I'd like to use libxml2 in a commercial
application, and if I understand the license correctly I can
distribute a binary version of libxml2 with my app so long as I
include a copy of the MIT license with my (closed source) application.

Where i'm a little less sure is with iconv... If I build libxml with
iconv, how does the GPL (the iconv license) affect my usage of
libxml2? Because I link to libxml2 (which in turn links to iconv) is
my app then subjected to the GPL? Do I then have to meet this portion
of hte GPL:

iconv comes with the glibc, which is licensed under LGPL, not GPL.
