well from a buildfarm maintainer perspective - I only have (or had on
some boxes) only libxml(or rather libxm-dev) installed because that's
what was required when we got the initial XML support.
Most of those boxes would have neither of those two - it's the buildfarm
itself that resulted in that library getting installed (and only that
one because it was sufficient at the time).
