      Description

      Debian is taking steps towards removing xml2-config in favour of pkg-config. This is part of a long-running project to remove foo-config legacy scripts and enable better cross-compiling on multi-arch systems.

      This change means cfengine3 will build without libxml2 support on Debian-based systems (including Ubuntu).

      I've prepared a patch to manage the change, using pkg-config if available, and falling back to xml2-config is not.
