Re: Configure failures on ia64 with libxml2 check.


   Don't know how it's working elsewhere, but this fixed the problem
for me:

--- configure.old       Tue Nov 20 09:54:36 2001
+++ configure   Tue Nov 20 09:52:51 2001
@@ -6719,6 +6719,7 @@
 #include <stdlib.h>
 #include <stdio.h>
+#include <string.h>
 #include <xmlversion.h>

The compile was producing seg faults because strdup() wasn't declared.
