The issue is a [bad] mix of tools/packages when pkgsrc is in effect, things still pick up
native.  The case of SmartOS is more, I believe, that PATH has /usr/gnu/bin...

This is a problem in general, though, as many tools override expected pkgsrc package precedence rules.

As far as using [pkgsrc]system libxml2, this should have been done a long time ago!

The test code (btw, you mentioned you were working on TEST_DEPENDS and cie?) I'll get rid
of since this workaround is no longer necessary on extremely recent illumos.
