The following Note is in the MesaLib documentation:

"The libxml2 Python module must have been built during the installation 
of libxml2 or else MesaLib build will fail."

Should it perhaps read as follows:

"Python must have been built during the installation of libxml2 or else 
the MesaLib build will fail."

It's a minor point, but it seems slightly unclear as  "Python Modules" 
is listed in the Table of Contents.  There is no libxml2 Python module 
in "Python Modules."  Might the libxml2 documentation also refer simply 
to Python, not the Python module.

The "Recommended" note in the libxml2 documentation refers to the Python 
library module.  From that I understand how the note came about as it 
refers to the Python library module, but just saying Python seems 
simpler/clearer.  It might save a new person some confusion/time.
