Doesn't seem to work with the libxml2-2.9 package, throws version error.

It appears there is something wrong with the source URL in the latest PKGBUILD. Build is failing with:

Note that if you have custom Perl packages installed alongside the official distribution you may get an error like this:

I was able to bypass the error by unsetting $PERL5LIB and and $PERL_LOCAL_LIB_ROOT when upgrading, like this:

env PERL5LIB= PERL_LOCAL_LIB_ROOT= yay --aur -Syu

@tallero Can you check if it is possible to lower the test time of the suite that is executed in the "check" function of PKGBUILD? At this time the installation of the package has taken more than 6 hours and counting

@gameslayer, there is nothing wrong with the W3C XML test suite link on my end. makepkg is able to download and verify all the sources.

Need to add python2 and libxml2 to depends=(). Also, remove redundant ncurses and readline. Also need to remove more empty directories: /usr/share/doc /usr/share/man /usr/share/gtk-doc.

Thanks @tallero, I update the package.
