I'm trying to produce libxml2 DLLs for windows by cross compiling with

Here is the configure command I used:

  $ CFLAGS='-DIN_LIBXML' ./configure --host=i386-mingw32
--disable-static --with-zlib=/tmp/cross --with-iconv=/tmp/cross
--without-python --without-readline

I can attach the entire build log if that helps.


Try adding LDFLAGS="-no-undefined" to configure line, build, and then
review the build log (just a wild guess)
Still not finding them.  Here is the entire build log:

for your libz.a (if your libz package doesn't provide one, you can
create it yourself, it's a relatively simple text shell script file). I
found that placing a proper .la file besides a .a file solves many
problems with libtool
