You likely need to make sure that libxml2 header packages are installed so that the python package can link against libxml2. On Debian and Ubuntu I think the package is libxml2-dev and is libxml2-devel on suse. This isn't something that you would add to your requirements.txt as it would be a system dependency. To get it installed on our test nodes you can add it to the project's bindep.txt file.

Hope this helps,
