First of all, it's great to hear that libxml2 compiled at all and that most of the tests seem to pass.

libxml2's make check is hanging at:

     Testing nanoftp : 14 of 22 functions ...
     Testing nanohttp : 13 of 17 functions ...
     Testing parser : 61 of 70 functions ...
     <hang here>

Does anyone have an idea what may be going sideways?

That's the 'testapi' test which causes the same problem on Windows. The test should complete eventually. It's just incredibly slow. One possible explanation is that somewhere an array is reallocated every time an element is appended. Some Linux allocators can handle repeated reallocations in linear time, but in general, you have to expect quadratic behavior. I just haven't found the time to investigate the issue.
