libxml2 Python bindings error


I have installed libxml2-2.5.7, libxslt-1.0.30 from source and the bindings

Everything seems to compile fine, but when I try to import the libxml2
library in python I get the following error:

Python 2.1.3 (#1, Feb 10 2003, 10:37:44)
[GCC 2.95.3 20010315 (SuSE)] on linux2
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
import libxml2

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.1/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1, in ?
import libxml2mod
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.1/site-packages/libxml2mod.so:
undefined symbol: xmlNewTextReaderFilename

How can I get rid of this error?
I need this libs for a Zope product called CMFOODocument, so I am depening
on python 2.1.3.
