Re: please update libXML (undefined references)

Yes, I verified this.  I installed into the real filesystem instead of
the .instdir and then relinking works well.

That was the same point, I did the build inside the sourcedir and
installed it directly in my real system.

Now I see:
(cd /sourcecode/XML/new/libxml2-2.4.23/python; sh ../libtool \
--mode=relink i686-pc-cygwin-gcc -O2 -o -rpath \
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages -module -avoid-version -L../.libs \
libxml.lo types.lo libxml2-py.lo ../ \
-L/usr/lib/python2.2/config -lpython2.2)
---------------------------- This is still correct...

libtool: link: warning: `/lib/' seems to be moved
i686-pc-cygwin-gcc -shared  .libs/libxml.o .libs/types.o \
.libs/libxml2-py.o  -L/lib \
--------------------^^^^^^^Wrong flag 1!!!
-L/sourcecode/XML/new/libxml2-2.4.23/.libs -L/usr/lib -lxml2 \
-------------------------------------------^^^^^^^^^Wrong flag 2!!!
-L/usr/lib/python2.2/config -lpython2.2  -o .libs/cygxml2mod.dll \
-Wl,--image-base=0x10000000 -Wl,--out-implib,.libs/libxml2mod.dll.a

Where do the flags come from?  Robert, is there a verbose or debug
option for libtool?
