Yeah, and that's exactly the problem I'm running into after the propsed
change: the pkg in question ("paranormal" xmms plugin) wants libxml2, and
some other depends (xmms or one of it's depends) wants libxml. now we'd
have XML_CONFIG set once to xml-config and once to xml2-config on the same
command line, which doesn't compute. I got around to patch the configure
script to s/XML_CONFIG/XML2_CONFIG/ for now.
Something different: shouldn't the libxml2/buildlink file make sure that
the right -Is are added to CPPFLAGS to find the libxml2 headers:
Again, that's only speaking for the above pkg, I don't claim to have an
overview of other pkgs using xml(2).
