hi Habs,

Niki already reported the issue related to building libofx against
libxml++ a few days ago


and I already fixed it in my branch on our git


it will go in the main repository at the next merge (soon): if you
wantto build it against libxml++, in the meantime, you can edit the
SlackBuild and do that little change.
