>From your log, it would appear that an expat header file was found in
/usr/include, but the corresponding library is not in /usr/lib. Either you
have an inconsistency (partial install), there is a bug in our detection of
an already-installed expat, you *do* have the library but not as
/usr/lib/libexpat.*, and/or we need to make our detection of the system
expat smarter (e.g. don't assume a lib exists just because we saw the
header, maybe other combos of installations, etc)

Could you post the portion of your config trace from apr-util where it shows
the searching for expat? I'm assuming that it will look something like:

checking for chosen DBM type... sdbm (default)
checking for Expat in /usr... yes

Dunno about the two -pthread thingies. Probably because Apache is still
doing some thread checking, in addition to getting thread stuff from

The -export-dynamic thing is a known problem and is listed in STATUS to be
fixed. Should be an easy fix, but it just needs to be done and tested.
