This probably isn't the whole answer, but I did notice that everything in
you system call is enclosed in an outer set of single quotes. This will
prevent macro variables from resolving.
Have you tried %include "&&_xyz\programs\&_s_m_dmacros.bat " ;
I don't know if it will work, because the only times I've used it were to
run SAS programs (with a .sas extension) but it might be work a try.
