Description Daniel Glaser 2007-08-19 18:34:41 UTC
e.g. mozilla-thunderbird-bin needs to work correctly and also some packages build from source are missing this special file when configuring themselves. Seems, with latest expat, this file isn't created anymore, only and some others. Dirty but quick workaround for me was creating a symbolic link from to

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Update to newest stable libexpat

Actual Results:  
Try emerging e.g. kde-base/kdenetwork-3.5.7-r1 (stops while configuring) or try starting thunderbird-bin on the command promt (for getting the error and no running instance)

Expected Results:  
Emerge completes or application starts

Could confuse some people, because expat is installed but configure or apps can't find it.
