Hi Alex,

the variable you should set for the path to your XercesC installation is
XERCESCROOT and not XERCESROOT.
If libraries are named differently in your installation (because they
eventually report the version number of the XercesC library), you
can either define in your environment:
  GDMLLIBS = "$(XERCESCROOT)/lib xerces-c_3.lib"
or make a copy or sym-link of xerces-c_3.lib to xerces-c.lib in your
XercesC installation ...

Cheers, Gabriele
