You have to install both libxml2 and the python binding for libxml2. You can find download links for both libraries here http://xmlsoft.org/ What distro are you using. Most disto's package managers can install these.

ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined symbol:

See if the python bindings for libxml2 are in /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/. They could very well be installed in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ (no /local). If so, just symlink to /usr/local/lib...etc.
