No problem. Couple things about xml, make sure you have the devel
packages installed for libxml2 (libxml2-devel), but also in dag's
repo, there are libxml++-devel and libxml++ which may work for you.
Some things aren't specific about what they need, so you may need to
watch build errors and output carefully, and combine that with lots of
'yum provides foo' to fix.  Changing source calls for xml to xml2 will
probably break, because there are a fair amount of differences.
