The link to the git version of linphone-desktop should come with a warning 
that compilation could result in some existing libraries being overwritten. 
Cloning the git pulls in all the dependencies for a linphone desktop. When 
compiling there is no check for dependencies that already exist.

In my case, libxml2 got downgraded. Email stopped working. Worst of all the 
package manager also stopped working and I could not use it to reinstall 
libraries that were no longer compatible with my system. Fortunately libxml2 
was installed in the wrong directory ( /lib rather than /lib64 ). Only the link had been removed from /lib64 and the actual binary was still 
intact. I may discover more problems but for the moment , all is well. It made 
for a tense moment however.
