Not to me for sure :) You might want to check in SuSE mailing lists.
However, if you have scripts to do xmlsec build for SuSE and can/want
to share these scripts with others then I would be glad to include
them in xmlsec distribution.

Get a stack trace. In theory, if there are no XML declaration then
it should not core dump but print a parser error. Also check that you
are linking to and loading correct libraries (ldd command).

I would suggest to first find out why it core dumps.  Validating
against DTD is easy with LibXML2. Check http://xmlsoft.org for details.
