In the relevant Configure part is LIBS="$LIBS -lexpat" defined which is
not needed here, instead of LIBS there should be this (and CFLAGS which
is entirely missing here, what a stupid bug):
Complete excerpt from Configure:
if [ "x$RULE_EXPAT" = "xyes" ]; then
if ./helpers/TestCompile lib expat; then
echo " + using system Expat"
if [ ! -d ./lib/expat-lite/ ]; then
echo "ERROR: RULE_EXPAT set to \"yes\" but is not available."
echo " + using builtin Expat"
CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -DUSE_EXPAT -I\$(SRCDIR)/lib/expat-lite"
