How can I build a package from source that require the source of another (library) package?

Hello fellow developers, I have a problem on which I need advice.

Pathan is a library that implements XPath functionality in c++. It
is available both as a separate tarball as well as bundled with the
Berkeley DB XML sources provided by Sleepycat Software. The pathan
build script require a path to the xerces source code tree. I have
tried to find a way to build the pathan library without providing
the xerces source but failed.

Is there anything I can do to work around this source dependency?

I can always give up the idea of an independent build of the pathan
library and ship it as part of dbxml where the source include both
pathan and xerces (and berkeley db, and xquery; in the same source,
sic; talk about bloat).

Any advice is welcome.
