This appears to be a libtool-related problem; the libxml2.la file is
telling it where to look for the .so file, but it's not there. It's
likely the failure actually occurred during the libxml2 installation,
and now applications that want to link against it cannot do so.
I would first try upgrading to libxml2-2.6.16 (or .17, if it's been
released), in case there have been build fixes since .13. If that
doesn't cure it, then you'll have to figure out why the libxml2.la file
is being installed with incorrect information in it.
