This is for the libxml2 parts though. Also, I see that the cleanups are
split from libutils, but then
a) libcleanups is basically used where libutils is
b) patch #14 makes the daemon link both libcleanup and libutils
so IMHO the libc + gnulib cleanups could simply stay where they are,
in libutils

I think it's basically used everywhere, even more so after the switch
to getprogname (which makes gnulib needed on Linux).
