Deprecated optional 3rd parties

After releasing ViSP 3.2.0 we introduce pugixml as a built-in 3rd party library. It replaces favorbly libxml2 3rd party library. As a consequence, there is no more need to install any 3rd party to parse xml files.

For those who want to continue to use ViSP releases up to ViSP 3.2.0 included, we give the instructions to install libxml2:
