What I did in a similar situation, was to take James Clark's expat
and wrap it in a SAXoid interface.  Today I would have done the same
thing with James Clarks modified version of David Megginsons proposal
instead of my own reinterpretation of the Java SAX into C++ (which is
what I now have).

Alternatively you can take a look at Xerces-C from the Apache
It has its own SAX interface.
