I am trying to do that under MinGW/MSys (having had no joy with MSVC due to msvcrt.dll incompatibilities), but am running into the error "undefined reference to _imp__xmlFree". If anybody knows how to solve this problem then I would be extremely grateful if they would let me know how.

That's a sign that you compiled LibXML2 as a static library, but compiled your application to consume LibXML2 as a DLL. When "_imp_" is prepended to a function name, that means the function lives (or is expected to live) in a DLL.

Try compiling your application with -DLIBXML_STATIC.
