My guess is that your find_package call end up in "Module mode"  because
there is a FindLibXml2.cmake module bundled with cmake does not honor all
options of the find_package when in this mode.

So I bet FindLibXml2.cmake does not handle the given
"PATHS "/usr" NO_DEFAULT_PATH" part.

Which are handled by find_package when running in "Config mode".

I suggest you to try patch and update the FindLibXml2.cmake module.
Or simply craft your own

find_library(...) call.if you only need the libxml2.
