Hey Samisa, thanks for the response. See my notes below:

I am, unfortunately, unable to upgrade to 2.6 at this time because of 
dependencies of other tools in my work envirnoment on Xerces.  I'll keep 
trying, or maybe try to set up my environment to fall back to the 2.2 
version that Axis 1.5.0 was built against.

Yes, this is true. However, isn't this why you copy 
(the default parser library) to (or create a 
simlink to accomplish the same thing)? Am I misunderstanding in thinking 
that these two libs are supposed to be exactly the same, only with 
different names?

If I am understanding correctly, this requires a step (post-build) on 
the user's part to make sure that they have either copied or linked the 
appropriate XML parser lib so that it is represented by the name 
'axis_xmlparser', which is just an abstraction you have placed on top of 
it. If this is the case, why not just do the same thing for the 
transport and channel libs? Meaning, why don't you provide generic lib 
names as an abstraction on top of the libraries, and then rely on the 
user to either copy or link them post-build? This would do away with the 
need for the conf file, correct?

Thanks! That hint just helped me track that down to the 
common/AxisConfig.cpp file. I'll try that out now.
