No, you substitute PREFIX with the directory where you installed libxml2
and leave that "/bin" out. Since you used the default configuration for
libxml2, it is installed in /usr/local. So use:

../configure --with-libxml2=/usr/local

Alternatively, you could put /usr/local/bin in your PATH variable.

(There might be something to be said about putting /usr/local/lib in
ld.config, but not /usr/local/bin in PATH. OTOH, it's only root's PATH,
so it doesn't really matter. But that's another story... :)
