We got an interesting report on the testers list today:

Basically, configure failed on their OpenBSD system because thread 
safety is on but the libxml2 wasn't compiled with threaded support:

Disabling either feature (no --with-libxml or --disable-thread-safety) 
gives a working build.

I wonder if it's worthwhile to document this coupling between thread 
safety and libxml2 in either 
or even the release notes.  It seems quite likely to bite someone else 
again the future.
