Yeah. Unfortunately binary eggs on linux are not recommended, due to a
variety of issues, including the UCS2/UCS4 issue. The source package is
installed and this requires a compile. lxml depends on libxml2 and
libxslt (includin their header files).
Should be documented.
The alternative is a buildout that builds libxml2 & friends itself.
Probably not worth it for now.
