#1628: Can't configure anymore again on mingw
 Reporter:  robe     |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  blocker  |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.0
Component:  postgis  |     Version:  trunk        
 Keywords:           |  
 I thought I had tested this last night but could be a new development.  I
 confirmed with the alpha7 from yesterday I can configure that.  On trunk
 today after deleting my automte folder and regress-install, I noticed
 things stopped working.  It's possible I missed yesterday because it might
 have been testing against my prior regress-install folder so all tests
 were passing (I have an auto .sh script to compile everything).

 Anyrate now I have configure issues as of r9339

 checking for PQserverVersion in -lpq... yes
 checking for xml2-config... no
 configure: error: could not find xml2-config from libxml2 within the
 current path. You may need to try re-running configure with a --with-
 xml2config parameter.
 make: *** [GNUmakefile] Error 1
 checking build system type... i686-pc-mingw32

 checking libpq-fe.h usability... yes
 checking libpq-fe.h presence... yes
 checking for libpq-fe.h... yes
 checking for PQserverVersion in -lpq... yes
   You have set the --prefix to '/c/projects/pg/pg91'. Unfortunately the
   build system can only install into the directories used by the
   PostgreSQL build you are compiling against, the one that supplied
   the pg_config we detected: /c/projects/pg/pg91/bin/pg_config
   Based on that script we will be installing:
     * postgis shared library in c:/projects/pg/pg91/lib
     * postgis SQL files in
     * postgis executables in c:/projects/pg/pg91/bin
   Please try again without a --prefix, sorry.

 works fine if I flip back to alpha7 tar ball from yesterday.  I'll
 redownload a tar and see if the tar works fine.
