using a pre-built version

I think we should have instruction for using one of the pre-built versions of the hdgeant/jana. That really lowers the threshold for getting started. Once a user has that established, the user can make a custom version of just the parts that need customization.

need for xerces

It says:

Note: You only need the XERCES packages if you're going to be modifying the geometry or the data model. 

That's not true, is it?

building hdgeant from the xml

Under "Building HDGeant", shouldn't we always create the geometry from the xml or do we do that already? Or does it take too long?
