The trouble is that because msxml3 links to a shared library, the 
library that the configure check is done against isn't necessarily the 
version that is used at runtime. (Think .debs for multiple distros and 
versions of those distros.)

Therefore, you may have to do the check at runtime. Where that check is 
implemented depends on what you need to do when you discover the buggy 
version is in use.
