Which do you need, C or C++?  They are two different languages with
different possibilities for libraries.

As the other poster mentioned, xmlrpc-c is a good one for C, and also
comes with bindings for C++ which I have used.  Getting xmlrpc-c
compiled can be a real challenge though.  I recommend you use binary
packages for your distribution of Linux.  If you need it on Win32, then
you'll have to spend a day or two figuring out how to build it on
Windows.  I eventually got the both the C and C++ client library built
in Mingw with libcurl as the transport.  But it was a real pain.
