in the lib directory, it tries to use automake and libtool to produce
a shared lib, but it failes.

/usr/bin/ld: .libs/expat_justparse_interface.o: relocation R_X86_64_32
against `a local symbol' can not be used w\
hen making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
.libs/expat_justparse_interface.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [] Error 1

in the lib dir, where needed :

Linux gcc10 2.6.32-bpo.5-amd64 #1 SMP Fri Jun 11 08:42:31 UTC 2010
