Most likely the macports one is confusing things. If you have a xml2-config in /opt/local/bin (as seems likely based on what you say below), take /opt/local/bin out of PATH and see how far you get.

Here's what my top level set_soenv looks like:
> ToFile( "LIBXML_CFLAGS",     "-I/opt/local/include/libxml2",    "e" );
> ToFile( "LIBXML_LIBS",       "-L/opt/local/lib -lxml2 -lz -lpthread -liconv
> -lm",      "e" );

But note that there are at the moment some libxml2-related problems on the Mac even with no macports present confusing stuff; the /usr/bin/xml2-config gets run to set up LIBXML_CFLAGS which then points to /usr/include/libxml2, even though what one really wants is the libxml2 headers from the 10.4 SDK. Hopefully this will be sorted out during the weekend.

In general, building master on any platform is still in a bit of flux since the m106 merge a week ago; patience is a virtue.
