Re: [xml] The order of arguments when compiling

Easy to get the -L options and -l options separatly with a good old 'cut' :

-lxml2 -lz -lm

Note that this is only guaranteed to work on your machine, and only as
long as you don't upgrade libxml2.
You can't rely on a fixed number of -L options : there may be no -L
options at all.
On Cygwin, xml2-config --libs outputs

-L/usr/lib -lxml2 -lz -liconv -lm

but -L/usr/lib is redundant and the next version may decide to omit it

My new
bin_PROGRAMS = xmlparsefile
xmlparsefile_SOURCES = main.c
xmlparsefile_LDFLAGS = `xml2-config --libs | cut -d " " -f 1`
xmlparsefile_LDADD = `xml2-config --libs | cut -d " " -f 2-`
xmlparsefile_CFLAGS = -Wall -Wextra `xml2-config --cflags

But error :
$ autoreconf
src/ linker flags such as `--libs' belong in `xmlparsefile_LDFLAGS
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

Do you see how to avoid this error?

No, sorry; I'm not familiar with automake.
You may want to file a bug against automake because this error message
is incorrect; apparently it didn't recognize the `` construct.
