The INSTALL file delivered with libxml2 sources

  3.libxml does not compile with HP-UX's optional ANSI-C compiler

Contrary to this statement, I successfully translated libxml2 with a
very old (Dec 2000) version of the HP-Unix C-Compiler under HP-UX
B.11.00. Ind I did not modify any of the supplied files not did I
specify and additional options (just ./configure; make; make install).

The compiler supplies the following version information:

  cpp.ansi: HP92453-01 B.11.11.02 HP C Preprocessor (ANSI)
  ccom: HP92453-01 B.11.11.02 HP C Compiler

Seen the fact that the regression tests (make tests) were executed
without problems and also my application runs fine, I think that the
statement in INSTALL should be removed (or at least worded differently).

  Simpler to remove it, that file wasn't changed since 2001 :-)
