Actually, someone had already gotten libxalan built so I didn't have to
deal with it.  For the Java version I have xalan-j_2_4_1-bin.tar.gz and
java version "1.4.1_01" (sdk).  There was a trick that was a bit subtle to
discover.  The xalan and xerces jar files must go in a special place to
override the older versions built into java.  The jars; at least
xalan.jar, xercesImpl.jar, xml-apis.jar, must be placed in

I do know that the latest version of Xalan C needs an older version of
Xerces (1.6 I think).
