I do not have libxml2 and config did not fail, so is that a bug? I did of course fail on build.  Also I have found libxml2-2.6.29.tar.gz and xml2_0.3.orig.tar.gz.  I assume I need libxml2-2.6.29.tar.gz.  Can you confirm that?  Any idea what the differences are between libxml2 and xml2 ??  I couldn't find much of  anything when googling for answers.

libxml2 is a prerequisite for libpurple itself regardless of UI, so
Finch really needs it.

configure should have failed due to the missing dependency.
