[xmlsec] Problem compiling on Mac OS X

Hi Aleksey,

I am trying to compile the xmlsec library on Mac OS X.  First I had 
some trouble with "configure" - it couldn't find libxml2.  I had a 
create a "bin" directory, put xml2-config in the "bin" directory and 
use the "--with-libxml=" option to tell configure where to look for it.

I was finally able to run configure successfully.  Now I am getting a 
compile error.  I already ran "make" a few times, so it is partially 
built.  This is what I get when I run "make" now:

Any idea how to fix this?  Is "apps" important?

I modified temporarily the Makefile and I took "apps" out.  I ran make 
and it did all in man, docs. and api.  Then, I ran "make install" and 
it installed a bunch of things.  I'm not sure how much I am missing 
without "apps."

I would appreciate any help.
