I am able to get past this problem by changing a line in the configure
script. I'm not sure if this is the recommended or most appropriate
way, but it seems to work for me on 7.0-RELEASE i386.
+BUILD_LIBXSLT="`pkg-config libxslt --libs`"
That having been said, I do hit build errors later in the process that
I have been unable to rectify, so if you get past this I'd like to
hear how the rest of it goes.
