Re: lib/40346: libexpat should be in base.tgz

I just ran into another case of this. I am rebuilding all my packages
for 5.0 now, and I wondered why p5-XML-Parser got built without
libexpat. After some discussion on irc channel #netbsd, it turned out
that it probably uses /usr/X11R7/lib/

Of course this is wrong.

libexpat is not an X library, so it should not be in /usr/X11R7.

I now have packages depending on it, which do not use X, yet if I decide
to remove or replace X, are utterly broken.

One could also argue that it is pkgsrc's fault for accepting that expat
library as acceptable.
