Are you sure don't you want libxml++1.0-dev or libxml2-dev? – enzotib Sep 24 '11 at 19:47
Yes, libxml2-dev, thanks! – umpirsky Sep 24 '11 at 19:50

libxml-dev was last seen in Hardy - so if you definitely still need this package, you could try downloading the deb appropriate to your platform and installing this.

libxml2-dev is available from software center or synaptic.
