The point is that Python must be built before libxml2.  Python is listed 
(correctly) only as an optional dep of libxml2.  Unfortunately, 
gnome-doc-utils is useless if the Python dep is not met for libxml2 as 
the required libxml2 module does not exist.  I've always built libxml2 
very early in the build process, of course my future choice of build 
order has now changed, but I think it warrants a note.
