When I run the make of cyrus-imapd-2.4.17-caldav-beta9 get the following error:

In file included from httpd.c:68:0:
httpd.h:48:25: fatal error: libxml/tree.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

I'm trying to install this beta version that supports calendars.

I have installed libxml2-dev.

apt-get install libxml2-dev

My operating system is Debian 7.

What am I forgetting?


dpkg -L libxml2-dev | grep tree.h shows that libxml/tree.h is in /usr/include/libxml2, not /usr/include. So you probably need to add -I/usr/include/libxml2 to your compiler commands. I don't know that particular Makefile, but typically you'd do that by running

CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/libxml2 ./configure


CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/libxml2 make
