#412 closed defect (wontfix)

Do we use libxml2?

Description (last modified by butler)

During the Sphinx doc build for Windows (using Anaconda) the following
error is thrown:

RuntimeError: Could not find libxml2 on the system

Anaconda uses the lxml Pythonic binding to libxml2 (& libxslt). But
this error is being thrown by \sasview\setup_mac.py!

The doc build continues nonetheless.

This raises two questions:
1) Is libxml2 still needed (on any platform)?
2) If libxml2 is only needed on Mac, why is a doc build on Windows
flagging it as an error?
