Probably isn't the wisest thing to do. But, under your circumstances,
it was one way to get libxml2 to compile.

Yes, the program Libxml2 builds that requires the glob.h file is
a program only built to run the regression tests on non-Linux
machines. The program is not installed on any platform and not
even needed on Linux.

I would be more worried about the fact that Heimdal overwrote the
glob.h file from the Glibc installation. I would restore that file
from Glibc just as quick as I could.
