This location is in the CVS sources.  If you downloaded the source
tarball, you should be able to find it in "src/jdbc/lib/README" of the
SQL sources.  (Yes, sorry, it's in the SQL package.)

You need the SQL sources, the file contains this message:

In order to be able to compile the MonetDB XML:DB driver, this directory
needs to contain the xmldb jar-file, which cannot be included here by
default for license issues.

In order to get the xmldb.jar file from the eXist project SF CVS server

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at exist.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/exist co
-r1.3 eXist-1.0/lib/core/xmldb.jar
mv eXist-1.0/lib/core/xmldb.jar .
rm -R eXist-1.0

(note, I just fixed the commands, these work)

After done this (in the lib dir), run in the jdbc dir:
% ant jar_xmldb
to build the xmldb driver.  It will be built as jars/monetdb-xmldb.jar.

Let us know if problems persist.
