- Where did you get the binaries for libxml
- What version of libxml
- Which import library are you linking to (shared/static)
If its a later version of libxml with shared import library (ie. linking to the
DLL via the .dll.a import library - if built via ./configure make; I do not
use), it should just work, if its the static version (normally .a) , then you
should define LIBXML_STATIC (-DLIBXML_STATIC to CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS). If its the
latter case (static) and you did not define LIBXML_STATIC, then its *not a bug*.
If you built it yourself and used win32/Makefile.mingw, then you probably will
run into issues, as it generates:
which will cause problems (and probably *is a bug*), as the default search
order for LD with MinGW is:
and will cause libxml2.a to be found first even with the shared import
library present (libxml2.lib - rather a MSVC naming scheme than a GCC/LD
one), and as you probably did *not* have LIBXML_STATIC defined, you are back to
the undefined reference. In this case I guess you can just remove libxml2.a
if you want to link to the DLL and not static, else add the define...
Also, I guess not using import libraries generated with gcc/binutils (ie. .LIB
via MSVC) could cause other problems.
