You seem to be using the source distribution of the XSD compiler (plus
it is an outdated beta). To build the XSD compiler this way you will
need to build a substantial list of additional packages. There are,
however, easier ways to go about this:
1. Unless you have a good reason to want to build the XSD compiler
yourself, I suggest that you get a pre-compiled binary package
from the download page:
xsd-3.3.0-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.bz2 will work for your OS. You can
also try the RPM package (xsd-3.3.0-1.x86_64.rpm).
Once you unpack this, simply cd to examples/cxx/tree/xpath and
run make. Everything should build without problems provided
you have Xerces-C++ and XQilla installed.
2. If you do want to build the XSD compiler yourself, the easier
way would be to download xsd-3.3.0+dep.tar.bz from here:
This package contains the XSD source code bundled with most of
Once unpacked, follow the instructions found in the README file.
Note that besides Xerces-C++ you will also need to build the
Boost regex and filesystem libraries (this is not necessary
for option (1) above). Once the compiler is built, you can
cd to xsd/examples/cxx/tree/xpath and run make from there.
When asked about using installed XQilla, answer yes. You can
also make a package similar to the one used for option (1)
with the 'dist' make target (see README for details).
