Well, the schemas are wrong, so there's something off about the build. It
might work with the appropriate pre-2.4 approaches as documented plus the
new handler for the feed, or other things might break simply because
there's more wrong than just the schemas. At a minimum, any 2.4 only
config changes would not work because they'd be rejected at load time. The
feed handler is a plug-point that doesn't actually require
schema-awareness so that could work.

I don't have any explanation for how a build from source would end up with
the wrong schemas installed, but the files in
<prefix>/share/xml/shibboleth are out of date based on the error you got
with the new element.
