[sf-perl] XML::Xerces and OS X 10.6

I've been tearing my hair out trying to get XML::Xerces compiled on my Snow Leopard Intel MacBook running perl 5.12.2. Every time I try, there seems to be some incompatibility between versions of xercesc and XML::Xerces such that, while xercesc 2.8 runs just fine, XML::Xerces can't use it. 

Google searching has led me to believe that there may be a way to get it to work, but it seems to require stronger magic than I have available.

Has anyone else got XML::Xerces working on OS X 10.6? 
If so, would you share it with me? (Either the secret or the binary, either would be fine.)

Thanks much!

PS - Yes, yes, "use a different XML parser." I have some legacy code that uses Xerces and I don't have time to rewrite it. New code that my group is writing uses either XML::LibXML or XML::XPath, depending on individual needs, and those modules both installed just fine on OS X. :-)
