XSLT extension can't compile in Mac OS Catalina.

libxml2 is now located at

$ xcrun --show-sdk-path

Test script:
./configure --with-xsl --without-iconv

It's actually not just xslt, but an xml in general

PHP 7.4 relies on pkg-config to find libxml2; is that properly
configured on your system?

It's fine if libxml2 is required for php 7.4. The problem is that this dependency issue doesn't appear until an error during compilation. There should be a check in the config to make sure it has all the necessary dependencies to perform the compile.
