  Nope, that's not it.  I think I /have/ traced it now: it's a packaging error
in libxml2 package itself.  It contains the dll, but the maintainer forgot to
package it with the correct prefix.  You might be able to fix the problem by a

mv /bin/cygxml2-2.dll /bin/libxml2.dll

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