Sorry, I didn't quite catch. The named readme describes how to build the 
library, not how to debug it. Build the library and enable the debugging 
symbol generation. Thereafter, your debbuger should automagically jump 
into the libxml source and ask you where it is if it cannot find the 
source. The VC DSP file has nothing to do with this.

And by the way, a DSP file for xmlsec does not exist.

Pay attention to the options you can pass to the configure.js script and 
enable the debugging symbols when you build your own binaries. You don't 
need my binaries, you cannot debug them.
