Looks like you don't have libxml2 built into SWISH-E.

Which operating system?

The detection is based solely on the xml2-config program being present
and in the PATH at compile time.  Also, libxml2 needs to be version
2.4.3 or newer.

This will tell you which version of libxml2 is installed:
$ xml2-config   --version

If that program isn't present then you may not have the libxml2
development libraries and headers installed.  If you're on a Linux
system you may need to install the corresponding development package
(e.g. libxml2-devel or libxml2-dev).
