fix memory leak xml header encoding field with XML_PARSE_IGNORE_ENC

When the xml parser encounters an xml encoding in an xml header while
configured with option XML_PARSE_IGNORE_ENC, it fails to free memory
allocated for storing the encoding.
The patch below fixes this.
How to reproduce:
1. Change doc/examples/parse4.c to add xmlCtxtUseOptions(ctxt,
XML_PARSE_IGNORE_ENC); after the call to xmlCreatePushParserCtxt.
2. Rebuild
3. run the following command from the top libxml2 directory:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.libs/ valgrind --leak-check=full
./doc/examples/.libs/parse4 ./test.xml , where test.xml contains
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-81" ?><hi/>
valgrind will report:
