No, the problem is different.
By default, NetBSD ships with X. X includes an expat library.
Bulk builds are done on default installs, so expat from X is used, not
Now, if you don't install X, you don't have expat, and you meet the
problem you see here.
Two possible solutions are:
a) install expat from the X sets (you don't need to install all files,
just the expat libraries)
b) recompile against expat from pkgsrc
I'd recommend a if your machine is too slow to compile its packages
