that was unrelated. fixed last night.

somebody (?) asked on irc that either Martin or I should update the internal
copies, and someone suggested to do the same with the expat sources. And I asked
our release manager if he was ok with this post beta change.

the first cross-build fixes went in in April, please consider these fixes for
the then incomplete cros-build fixes. The build issues you did see last night,
were fixed for the OS X build, and I reverted the update for the compiler search
paths for the native build. So please lets keep this cross-build support for
3.3. It's working, tested with a arm-linux-gnueabi build on x86_64-linux-gnu.
