Error compiling barry with desktop gui

Hi all. So trying to compile Barry with the desktop gui enabled and getting the error below.

My Google fu is failing me as I can't find a link anywhere to libxml++-2.6.

Anyone got a link or package that meets this requirement?

checking for BARRY... yes
checking for GLIB2... yes
checking for LIBXMLPP... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libxml++-2.6) were not met:

No package 'libxml++-2.6' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

If for some reason that's too new for the package you are building, work backwards through the versions here:

Vienne and Murray Cumming. It is released under the LGPL version 2 or

Oh hang on. Ignore me. having a bad night. Sometimes I just forget the crazy numbering system Linux uses where larger numbers are smaller than smaller numbers and vice versa
