  Whoops!  You're right, what I saw in there was only the export library

  This must be a real packaging error.  Looks like the maintainer might have
compiled libxml2-devel with "--disable-shared" and then compiled xmlcatalog
with "--enable-shared".

  Your quickest workround would probably be either rebuilding xmlcatalog from
source, giving it the "--disable-shared" option at configure time so it builds
and links against the static libxml2.a, or to rebuild the libxml2-devel
package from source (default options this time) so as to generate your own
copy of libxml2.dll.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
