Download the latest libxml2 tarball, unpack it, and read
win32/Readme.txt there.  Turns out building it with MinGW is easy,
there's a Windows-specific script in that subdirectory which
configures the package, and it supports MinGW.  I built it without any
fuss, with just one minor bug encountered: I configured with the
optional zlib support, and the produced Makefile used the wrong name
for zlib library (libzdll, while MinGW uses libz).  After fixing that
in win32/Makefile, the build "just worked".

It's a pity this isn't documented anywhere in the libxml2 Web pages,
or we would have known that back then.  Anyway, better late than
never ;-)
