Subject: Overeager basic.t reports error where nothing is broken

As per subject. Sample fail report: The test suite shows that no harm is done but basic.t reports that the version number of the libxml2 is not the same anymore as the version number was when XML::LibXML was built. If no other tests fail, this test is nonsense because an apparently compatible shared library is in place. Please remove this test or amend it to become a warning that says something like "Probably harmless observation: version numbers not matching" or some such. Or only notice the mismatch when actually something is broken. Thank you,

I also get this error when building XML::LibXSLT with the original XML::LibXML shipped with Ubuntu 13.10. I think the proper fix would be to check that the runtime version is greater or equal than the compiled verison.
