[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#675718: libxml2-dev: possible API change without SONAME bump

I'm sorry to hear that your package FTBFS (possibly) due to libxml2's
problem. But it's unlikely to expect a SONAME change in libxml2 (thus
breaking existing API) as its name has suggested. Otherwise upstream
will release something like libxml3.
Just did a quick look at current libxml2.so.2.8.0, xmlParseFile is
present (on amd64):
$ aptitude show libxml2 | grep Version
$ objdump -T /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxml2.so.2.8.0 | grep xmlParseFile
0000000000051d20 g DF .text 000000000000000c LIBXML2_2.4.30 xmlParseFile
I don't have time to look at the details of your problem right now, but
please do point the source and packaging stuff you are currently working
on so I can have a look at them and try to help later.
