Hi Ned. I've removed the mac ports version of libxml2 and libxslt and it 
compiled - woo hoo!! I'll try a new build of mod_python tomorrow. Maybe 
things are not so bad after all. This is quite encouraging.  I guess I 
am getting down about these linking issues and of course want some 
better reliability back into some of the software builds that I seemed 
to have before. Many thanks for this tip :-)
