[Rd] XML package for Darwin

I can get it to build and install quite easily, I have not tested it in
any way. In fact R CMD CHECK fails in running all examples.
Output files included below.

-------------- next part --------------

1. I use libxml from fink (1.8.17-3 )

2. When linking XML.so I manually add the flag "-Xlinker -m" because

ld: warning multiple definitions of symbol _xmlParserError
Utils.o definition of _xmlParserError in section (__TEXT,__text)
/sw/lib/libxml.dylib(error.lo) definition of _xmlParserError

My understanding is that xmlParserError from Utils.c is supposed to
overwrite the one from libxml, but simple overriding is not possible
in OS X flat namespaces. The linker flag forces the right definition.

Here is some configure output

checking libxml/parser.h usability... yes
checking libxml/parser.h presence... yes
checking for libxml/parser.h... yes
Found the libxml parser.h in /sw/include/gnome-xml/libxml/
Located parser file /sw/include/gnome-xml/parser.h
-D__DEBUGGING__ -I/sw/include/gnome-xml -I/sw/include/gnome-xml/libxml  
Using libxml 1.8.*!

checking for xmlParseFile in -lxml... yes
New style libxml!
