[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: libxml2
Version: 2.8.0.dfsg1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: upstream patch

This package needs autoconf updates (to config.guess and config.sub)
to build for 64-bit arm. The arm64 port is stalled until this package
is updated.
                                                                                                                                                         
Support for aarch64 has been added to autotools config.guess and
config.sub in autotools 20120210.1

For upstream running autoreconf against autotools-dev 20120210.1 or
later will fix the autoconf part.

For the Debian package, if you wanted to keep this up to date
automatically in the future (generally a good idea) then adding
something like this to your distclean target would be effective: -test
-r /usr/share/misc/config.sub && cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.sub
config.sub -test -r /usr/share/misc/config.guess && cp -f
/usr/share/misc/config.guess config.guess (You could instead just make
those files links.) along with a build-dependency on autotools-dev
 
Please pass this bug report to upstream (I hope I have CC:ed the right
person in this report)

> Thank you for filing a new Bug report with Debian.

Closing this bug as I've realised that the Debian rules file runs
autoreconf on every build so this package configs fine for arm64 in
Debian. Upstream still needs to autoreconf on next release to update
things for non-Debian downstreams. 

Apologies for the noise.
