I just did this a couple days ago. Here's what I did:

1. Visit http://homepages.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython/download.html and download
the MacPython 2.3 for Panther addons installer.

2. Once installed, you'll find a MacPython-2.3 folder in your Applications

3. Run the PackageManager

4. At this point, PackageManager will probably give you an error that it
couldn't download an information.

5. Now visit http://www.python.org/packman/ to try downloading a different
database. I found that the experimental version for 10.3 worked for me.

6. Use the URL of that plist file in the "Open URL" option in the File menu
of the PackageManager.

7. Once PackageManager is able to connect to that database, you'll be able
to choose to install libxml2 from the list of available packages.

8. Q.E.D.

Hope this helps.
