Just for the record : I was able to get over the libsoup issue following
1) Get the libsoup sources from
2) Run configure and make install
3) Run sudo ldconfig - This updates the environment vars to use the latest
version of the libs installed.
4) Download glib required version -
5) Run steps 2 & 3 for glib as well
6) Download glib-networking -
7) Run steps 2 & 3 for the above lib
8) Install php5-xmlrpc using apt-get install
To know the current version of the lib installed use the pkg-config
