Thanks for the response. I think I may be looking in the wrong place to
determine whether a global variable is publically accessible
(globals.h). Is there any other way to see whether variables and struct
supposed to be used publically? I need to check the LSB spec for
discrepancies and it seems to imply that _xmlGlobalState is just a
regular struct.

  To me it's not part of the API. It's a mechanism to make thread specific
some of the global variables which influence the processing. This is an
error at two level to use them:
  - one should not use the global variables, usually there is equivalent
    mechanism to influence parsing in the newer APIs
  - second this strustucre is thread local storage, not something which
    is a general purpose programming tool of the library, it must be made
    public for the remapping to work, but it is not intended as a user

In a nutshell, really don't do this.
