I presume you're not pasting... There's a -I missing here. How about

INCLUDES = -I${top_srcdir}/include ${XERCESINCDIR} ...

top_srcdir is already predefined for you, so no need to substitute it
in. Also, you should make the complete -I specs in your configure file
-- this way you're free to make XERCESINCDIR empty if it is on the
search path anyway.

Is DSI_ROOT_DIR the build root of your project? If so, you should
probably not -L it, but rather use a path in LDADD.

Don't include -lc yourself. Your compiler will do that for you, with the
added bonus that the compiler knows how libc is named on your system.

Unneccesary. Automake generates this rule for you and also keeps track
of the .h files.

What kind of flags do you need?

Listing .h files as sources adds them to the distribution, but automake
knows that they cannot be compiled directly.
