Re: Expat 2.2.10 has been released
I'm adding wiz to CC with this e-mail.
That circular dependency is known in general and is one reason, why
Expat is still shipping with two build systems today: GNU Autotools and
CMake. There are multiple ways of addressing this issue at
packaging/distro level, each with different pros and cons:
a) Use GNU Autotools in packaging of Expat.
b) Make the CMake package use the Expat copy bundled by CMake.
c) Have two CMake packagess, a bootstrapping one using bundled Expat
and a regular one using shared libraries and system Expat.
GitHub issue 330  may be of interest as well.
Does that help?
PS: Expat needs CMake >=3.1.3, CMake 2 is not sufficient.
