Nope.  I *told* AC_CHECK_HEADER to look in <default-path>/libxml2; you 
did not.

Notice that your example would be equivalent, in respect of the search 
path determination, to...

    [AC_MSG_ERROR([cannot find headers for libxml2])])

...whereas I explicitly made it relative to *any* default include path 
searched by the compiler...

    [AC_MSG_ERROR([cannot find xml headers])])

In my case, that default search path is /usr/include; if the same 
doesn't work for you, then the only conclusion that can be drawn is 
that /usr/include is not a default include path, in your compiler
