'libxml2' is probably already installed, version 2.6.32 ?
You may need 'libxml2-dev' . Install it with Synaptic or
'sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev'
And don't try to compile a different version, will just
mess up things.
Again : Never try to build "system files" which can be
installed with the package manager.
Also try out this command : apt-cache search libxml2
to know, what is available.
