  honnestly I have the same here, and I still don't know where this
  comes from ! But taht doesn't block the build

  I build libxml2/libxslt on ppc64 for RHEL and we don't have any
  specific architecture problem.

  really no idea, if Makefile empty ?
The weird thing is that apparently libxml2 builds on that platform,
and libxml2 and libxslt configure and stuff all look similar.
The best I can suggest is to grab libxslt from gnome git, and run to try to rebuild locally. Maybe some of the auto* files
in the distributed tarball ar too old for your platform, but 
I really don't see how you would end up with an empty or unusable
