March 2005: I recommend using the Package "Libxml 2.6.17" from DevPaks.
You also need libiconv 1.9.1.
How to use libxml with Dev-C++?
in Dev-C++ gives the error message:

Thanks to Michel Weinachter for providing the DevPak Howto!
I just realise, that with this devpak still there is a crash when calling the function xmlValidateDtd. No idea at the moment how to solve that...
In Project/Project/Options, Paramaters, in C++ compiler, you have to
add the define
In Project/Project Options, Parameters, in Linker, you have to add some
of the following libraries:
How to compile libxml with mingw
Download and install from mingw.org the
current MinGW bin, e.g.
MinGW-3.1.0-1.exe, and the current MSYS bin, e.g.
Download the special version of libxml libxml2-2.4.25-special.tar.gz (copied from the original location, which is now a "dirty" site....)
See the thread compiling
libxml v2.4.26 with mingw under win2k on the gnome xml mailinglist
Go into the directory where you unzipped libxml2-2.4.25-special.tar.gz,
and there execute:
copy the resulting file from ./libs/libxml2.a to c:/mingw/lib and
copy the libxml2-2.4.25/include/libxml folder to c:/mingw/include/libxml
When compiling directly with msys:
dont forget to include the necessary libs in your makefile:
I also had to use -DLIBXML_STATIC for compiling the cpp files.
Otherwise I got errors like
undefined reference to `_imp__xmlGenericError'
undefined reference to `_imp__xmlGenericErrorContext'

There is a mingw makefile in the zip file: download lib xml
