I just tried again. My make doesn't complete successfully. It prints:
No rule to make target libxml/tree.h, needed by SAX.lo
I just got an idea it could be caused by my alias make="make -j4" (I have a multiprocessor system and without it, compilation is twice as slow). When I do unalias
make, it works.

Does it mean the libxml makefiles are buggy?
