I tried compiling php 5.2.10 myself on lenny.

$ ./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs=/path/to/apxs
checking whether to enable LIBXML support... yes
checking libxml2 install dir... no
checking for xml2-config path... /usr/bin/xml2-config
checking whether libxml build works... no
configure: error: build test failed.  Please check the config.log for 

 From config.log:

configure:20827: checking whether libxml build works
configure:20854: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c

          -lresolv -lm -ldl -lnsl  -lxml2 1>&5
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.3.2/../../../../lib/libxml2.so: undefined 
reference to `gzopen64'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 20843 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

     char xmlInitParser();
     int main() {
       return 0;

If you remove the dependency from the .la you probably have to list it 
using xml2-config, no?
