Indeed, Ben, I take it you solved the libxml2 linking problem? A
suitable patch would be appreciated if you have it.

Oh. What I did was link against an independently compiled libxml2.2,
to wit, the fink one. Do you have a reason for wanting to link against
Apple's libxml? Is there an advantage in creating a dependency on
Apple's binaries? Assuming that Xara LX (Official) is Tiger only, this
might be a good idea as you can weak link to it.

Is it the case that the Apple libxml is missing some symbols that
wxWidgets needs? If so, I would expect there to be a paper trail in
either the wxWidgets or the Apple development community?

The fink version is slightly later, videlicet:

$ find /usr/lib /sw/lib -name 'libxml2*dylib'

Could this be the only problem???

If so, you might want to add a check for one of the newer functions
(one that is actually used by wxWidgets - no cruel coding!) in
./configure as a reminder.
