The aim would be to persuade Apache to configure itself against the
same Expat library that pyexpat is using, which would involve the
headers and libraries referenced during the pyexpat configuration
process, although I seem to recall something about pyexpat bundling
its own version of Expat - that would complicate matters somewhat.

Expat might be getting brought into Apache via mod_dav:

Perhaps disabling mod_dav when configuring Apache might drop Expat
from Apache's library dependencies.
