Another reason would be the windows build ability. Some time ago,
I took the path to build libxml64 from sources on Visual Studio,
this turned out to take some trial&error steps.

Sometimes, friendly people publish built binaries at some
point (like here: ftp://ftp.zlatkovic.com/libxml/64bit/) but
I think one cannot say in advance which binaries would work
with which build and/or compiler version and how long these
locations are maintained.
