yes, and that the C++ protobuf C++ stuff is way more mature than its C
counterpart is an additional advantage ...

My fault, i was not consistent in naming things "xml2" or "libmxl2" and
did not notice that i had screwed up the default as i had only tested
with explicit --input-reader=... settings.

"osm2pgsql --input-reader=xml2 ..." will provide the default behavior
for now, the source branch on launchpad already has things fixed ...

this is a message generated by libtool which was not used earlier

as far as i remember it wasn't, now it is if the necessary postgresql
dev stuff needed for building it is found by configure
