Error: the HTTP XSLT module requires the libxml2/libxslt – Nginx / CentOS 7.3

Ran into this error when I was trying to compile nginx from source:

./configure: error: the HTTP XSLT module requires the libxml2/libxslt libraries. You can either do not enable the module or install the libraries.

Luckily there’s a quick fix for this, issue the following command shell to install the required libraries

yum install libxslt-devel

That should be it.
