Question During make of libxml2 got this error

During the make step I received this error at the end of the make

/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -Wall -o -rpath /usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages -module -avoid-version -L../.libs libxml.lo types.lo libxml2-py.lo ../
libtool: link: cannot find the library `'
make[3]: *** [] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/glenn/Downloaded Source Files/libxml2-2.6.9/python'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/glenn/Downloaded Source Files/libxml2-2.6.9/python'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/glenn/Downloaded Source Files/libxml2-2.6.9'
make: *** [all] Error 2

What am I being told?
Do I need a library?

Yep. libxml2, it seems. It may be on your box but just in the wrong place or you may not have it.
