I only had time to build Wine and to compile the tutorial files in the libxslt
source package. Some headers, such as xsltutils.h, #include <libxslt/xsltconfig.h>,
so if the compiler was unable to find xsltconfig.h, then we'd know the 
patch was immediately incorrect.

Debian searches /usr/include and /usr/include/<triplet>, so moving the header
into the triplet include path shouldn't break anything (in theory anyway).

A quick search shows around 80 reverse dependencies on libxslt1-dev.
I'll take this on.
