No, it won't:

CentOS49[root_at_smtp4 ~]# pkg-config libxml --libs
Package libxml was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libxml.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libxml' found
CentOS49[root_at_smtp4 ~]# pkg-config libxml-2.0 --libs
-lxml2 -lpthread -lz -lm

At least on CentOS 4.9, it only accepts libxml-2.0 as the argument. As does:

CentOS49[root_at_smtp4 ~]# xml2-config --libs
-lxml2 -lz -lpthread -lm

Andreas, you're a Suse guy right? Is Suse the same?
