Now I'm trying to build libguestfs-1.4.6, but I get a completely different

mkdir -p ../perl/lib/Sys
mkdir -p ../ruby/ext/guestfs
mkdir -p ../java/com/redhat/et/libguestfs
mkdir -p ../csharp
cd .. && ocaml -warn-error A src/generator.ml
Cannot find file xml-light.cma.
File "src/generator.ml", line 11819, characters 4-53:
Unbound constructor Xml.Element
make[3]: *** [stamp-generator] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libguestfs-1.4.6/src'
make[2]: *** [../src/stamp-generator] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libguestfs-1.4.6/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libguestfs-1.4.6'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Again, any pointers would be much appreciated.
