  Did you need any patch ?

I compiled the tests for libxml2 and ran them on both the Mac Book  
Pro (Intel) and a PowerBook (PPC).  All tests passed... well, almost;  
there was one error reported but the message said "Specific platform  
thread support not detected" so I presume that this means threading  
may not be available.

I just ran the test suite on fink's libxml2-2.6.27 package and did not
get that thread-detection message. Steve, how exactly did you run the
tests? I did 'make check' from the build directory after compiling and
installing using normal autoconf tools on OS X 10.3 (powerpc), not as
an XCode project. DanielV, where specifically should we look for
different tokens that would account for the differing test behavior?
Threading is indeed supported on OS X and ./configure reports (with no
thread-related flags):

Enabling multithreaded support
checking pthread.h usability... yes
checking pthread.h presence... yes
checking for pthread.h... yes
checking for pthread_join in -lpthread... yes

IIRC, some of the normal linuxish flags one uses are not correct, so
if the tests are doing funny flag things, but I didn't look into the
test suite to see what flags control the threading there.
