[xmlsec] correct version of libxml2

We are having problems with libxml2 that are not related to xmlsec. Our xmlsec tests are working fine so far, but some of our core libxml2 usage is broken. I would like to know what the minimum version of libxml2 is that I can use and still get full xmlsec functionality.

I am testing xmlsec against the latest versions of Libxml2. In my experience,
most of the reported problems with libxml2/xmlsec stability have been caused
by incorrect versions of libraries at compile vs run times. Usually, the solution is
to use 'ldd' and make sure you have correct LD_LIBRARY_PATH set.

BTW, make sure to also recompile libxslt if you are using it.

What is the best version of libxml2 to use with xmlsec? We are using xmlsec1-1.2.16 with libxml2-2.7.8, but are having major runtime problems in our applications. If we use libxml2-2.6.22, then our applications run fine, but I know we need to use a newer version of libxml2 with xmlsec. I grabbed libxml2-2.7.8, but it has many runtime and build problems. Is there an older, more stable libxml2 I can use?
