[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#519611: libxml2-dev: c14n.h includes xmlversion.h too late

Package: libxml2-dev
Version: 2.7.3.dfsg-1
Severity: normal

If I include c14n.h before any other libxml2 header, none of the
declarations are declared; that is, it's basically a no-op.  This is due
to the following parts of the header:

   #ifndef __XML_C14N_H__
   #define __XML_C14N_H__
   #ifdef __cplusplus
   extern "C" {
   #endif /* __cplusplus */
   #include <libxml/xmlversion.h>

Note that xmlversion.h, which defines LIBXML_C14N_ENABLED and
LIBXML_OUTPUT_ENABLED, is not included until after they are used in
ifdefs.  This causes a problem if c14n.h is the first libxml2 header
(which is quite likely, if the headers are #included in alphabetical
