probably some .la file is requesting /usr/lib/ as a
dependency, my guess would be  you can probably get
away with editing the problem file(s) to reflect the correct path

to find the offending .la file(s), do something like the following:

$ for i in /usr/lib/lib*.la /usr/local/lib/lib*.la ; do \
> grep -l '/usr/lib/libxml2\.la' $i ; done

it's best though, when updating/reinstalling a package, to first
completely remove all dependent packages, then reinstall them.
