It depends on how the tummy-expat spec file was built. Some packagers
just throw everything in together, binaries, libraries, documents and
header files into a package called <Foo>. Others split up a build into a
<Foo>.rpm, <Foo>-docs.rpm, <Foo>-devel.rpm and maybe even a
<Foo>-lib.rpm As well as removing the buildprereq: expat-devel, you can
also mung it by changing it to expat only (I.E. get rid of the -devel
bit.).

If you want a prebuilt rpm for Mandrake 7.2, I could always email you my
build, but I understand if you want to build it from source.

Lotsa pythonieering,
