Check the log (jeesh, I wish configure would just *say* that when it errors
out, it would save so much email).

That's not necessary for building xmlsec anymore, and you can use
--with-xerces if you need to.

As a rule, NEVER manually set those to values that configure should be
getting through "proper" options. It just confuses the scripts.

Well, the code you're trying to build is not supported on FreeBSD, so
consider whether that's even something you can deal with anyway.
