can you grep ./configure for "xml2-config", and confirm that the xml2-config
script is indeed in your $PATH ?

Honestly, I'm not sure now whether 0.88.1 could build with libxml2. The
snapshots are intended to stabilise, but... we're having some tough issues
with Unicode and FreeType at the moment (this is mostly makefile
fine-tuning; I expect we're in a better state two weeks from now).

Wow -- no, if you can build 0.88.1, please do so. There is one major
annoying bug in it, but it's vastly improved from 0.86
