I thought so but I could not remember installing perl-XML-LibXML ..
bizarre. Using RPMfind, between Ximian, Red Hat and FreshRPMS only
FreshRPMS has it in a 'testing' section; I wonder what Ximian's Mono
RPMs are compiled against then.

Guess I'll try rebuilding them for Severn ... then again someone else
tried compiling Mono and apparently it segfaulted. Ah well.

Would be nice to have XML, SAX etc. Perl modules built-in next time
round.
