Ok, thanks for that piece of info.

Yes, Maybe I can call this out in the README better? Almost every
release of Xerces-C is incompatible with previous releases, and so
each release of XML::Xerces is numbered to match the corresponding
release of Xerces-C that it has been built with.

If you're lucky and you're using a newer version of Xerces-C than I
have built a release for (like 2.2 say), just re-running SWIG using
the existing interface file may create a workable version of
XML::Xerces, and it may not.

This shouldn't be necessary, do they suggest you do this?

Hmm.. don't they create the symlinks for you? That should get filed as
a bug report.

Thanks Todd. With Google around archiving the WWW for us, it's great
to have summaries like this.
