This is down to version mismatch between the libxml2 and libxslt, which 
based on your comment below is because you have two developments sets 
for libxml2

It may be enough to remove the libxml2.so symbolic link from the old 
release (keeping the runtime libs), or maybe run the xml2-config from 
the newer release, check the configure --help but it probably is 
impossible to get configure to avoid all these issues because there is 
the linking during the build and there is also the runtime linker which 
is outside of the configure process.
