someone should come up with a strategy how to
avoid libxml2 dependencies in unix userspace:
it is a dangerously broken library.

there should be a way to avoid cmake dependency,
i think it can generate Makefiles so those can
be included in the source for common platforms..

either way cmake is a portability nightmare..
and so many package depend on it :(
