Matt, I am just curious, what is the command line you typed to install
Xalan and Xerces on your FreeBSD machine?  Olivier, what was the
command line you typed?

Matt, I also wonder why the configure script didn't work for you
without patching it.  If it didn't work for you out of the box, there
surely will be other people for whom it doesn't work either.  What
patch did you need to make?

Dear mailing list:  Xalan / Xerces are confusing in that there are
different version numbers and different versions available (for
example, there are Java versions.)  I wonder if the docs could be made
more clear and better explain exactly which Xalan and Xerces to use.
