Build issues

We’d like to use the oath toolkit for 2FA on our new embedded device, but we’re having issues trying to get it all built under Yocto (or Ubuntu 22.04 desktop for that matter).


We’re able to get oathtool and liboath built (and on Ubuntu also the pam). 


But pskctool and libpskc refuse to be configured.  After examination it appears that XML2 may be the cause of the problem (even under Ubuntu).  XML2 is installed in Yocto (and Ubuntu), but the configure check for the package always fails, so it’s not being included in the makefiles (on both platforms).


I did a bit of searching and saw that a 2-year old merge ticket on XML2 was put in by folks here…it mentions 2.70+…we’re using 2.9.x versions…but configure still doesn’t find them.


It appears (for all practical purposes), the oath toolkit configure procedure is broken…likely on many systems too if it can’t even be built out of the box on Ubuntu 22.04.


Not sure where to go from here on this.  We’ve already put in quite a few man hours into trying to get this built and have stopped trying at this point…it’s burning up too much resources…;(…


If anyone has any information on how to resolve this issue please reply.
