Later today I'll be able to look into this.

Let me just ask a couple of questions now:
 - If cygwin has now broken normal usage of pkg-config, then should
   xmlwrapp still depend on pkg-config, or should it use some other
   way of finding libxml2 that's more robust?
 - Given that lmi compiles xmlwrapp's sources the same way as any
   of its own sources, does this issue even affect lmi?

I'll address them later today.
