Here is the stdout for install:

i tried installing libxml2 manually, but still getting the same issue.
also, i checked for libxml2-dev:
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libxml2-dev is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 78 not upgraded.
here is the system info:
lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 11.04 Release: 11.04 Codename: natty
uname -a Linux autobot 2.6.38-8-server #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:49:04 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I think the relevant line is:
Checking for ability to link against libxml2...libxml2, zlib, and/or the Math library (-lm) have not been found.
So, you've covered off libxml. Have you installed the appropriate zlib package? Try:
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
Then try installing XML::LibXML again.
