oh the rabbit hole...

as i have other builds of python3.7 on my system i wanted to ensure it used the correct python and python-config (python 3.7 was built and installed into $HOME/Projects/python/inst/) as such its a rather convoluted configure command for libxml2

LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/Projects/python/inst/lib" PATH=/Users/simon/Projects/python/inst/bin/:$PATH ./configure --prefix=/Users/simon/Projects/python/inst/ --with-python=/Users/simon/Projects/python/inst/bin/python3 --with-python-install-dir=/Users/simon/Projects/python/inst/lib/python3.7/site-packages

the LDFLAGS envvar was required as python-config --ldflags also does not provide -L for the python libary

ld: library not found for -lpython3.7m

in config.log for libxml2 (PYTHON_LIBS which is the output of $HOME/Projects/python/python3-config --ldflags)
PYTHON_LIBS='-lpython3.7m -ldl -framework CoreFoundation -Wl,-stack_size,1000000 -framework CoreFoundation'

after LDFLAGS="..." is added

ld: -stack_size option can only be used when linking a main executable
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

if you want more log lines please let me know but those should be the only relevant ones
