Actually, I think libxerces-c21, -c22, and -c23 should be *removed* 
entirely.  They do not have source.  (Alternatively, I could rummage 
around in the cygwin time machine and retrieve the appropriate source 

Why hasn't upset caught this?

Each respective setup.hint specifies 'external-source: xerces-c' but 
there is no xerces-c-src package for, e.g. verison 2.4.0-4.
