For free or open source (not necessarily GPL, though), you might be
Sleepycat DB XML [http://www.sleepycat.com/products/xml.shtml]
PostgreSQL + third-party XPath tools
Also, for a more "all-in-one" search engine/digital library toolkit for
end-user usage, look at Greenstone [http://www.greenstone.org], although
its XML capabilities aren't its strongpoint. I'm sure I'm forgetting
some as well....
