A quick search only showed problems with APR and HTTPd which both bundle
expat's source tree.  I'd say let the project fix it.

I don't have any idea what autoreconf may be 8-)

helios is bound to go away and be replaced, I don't know which version
of libtool is going to be there.  Sander, do you know which version of
libtool is installed on the XServe machine?

Doesn't feel right.

We could install expat as well and make apr/httpd use the system
provided one so at least they will be able to build.  We can always make
the use Gump's expat once we figured out how to build it.
