Good spotting.  I simply overlooked that.

No clue right now.  I've uploaded my autobuilt libxml2 (about 28 MB) at
http://joty.drobe.co.uk/libxml2.tar.bz2 so you can perhaps after substituing
/home/simon/src/gccsdk/build/libxml2 by /home/john/gccsdk/build_aof/libxml2
etc diff the two directories and maybe find the relevant difference ?
