Could you please find out which versions of libxml2 and libsxlt are used to compile lxml on your working instance?

I managed to figure out how to link to any specific version of libxml2, and somewhere on SO it seemed like I needed 2.7.8, but it's still not working:

>>> from lxml import etree

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in
ImportError: dlopen(/Users/fulvio/plone/gisweb/lib/python2.7/site-packages/lxml/, 2): Symbol not found: _xmlBufContent
Referenced from: /Users/fulvio/plone/gisweb/lib/python2.7/site-packages/lxml/

Never mind, all I had to do was easy_install lxml==2.2.8.
On to the next problem.
