looks fine, applied and commited. In the past Roumen Petrov has been the

OK!  I don't think I have any more patches for libxslt anyway - it
seems to just work now.

On the subject of enabling modules to work in libxml2, I wonder if
you've looked at FlexDLL?  It offers a dlopen-like interface for Win32

  Libxml2 approach on portability is using the native interface as
much as possible, we don't add dependancies for portability, because
in general people just don't want more deps than libxml2 and what
comes with the native platform.
  We actually use XMLPUBFUN macro, then mapped to  __declspec(dllexport)
in the include public headers of libxml2, as a result the functions
are accessible if a module is loaded with LoadLibrary(), I guess it
removes most of the specifics that flexdll uses to mimics dlopen()


Dunno why Richard build fail to enable modules in case of cross-compilation.
