Expat 1.1 doesn't build a libexpat.a file, so you have to list all the
object files inside expat.  Modules/Setup.in assumes that libexpat.a
has already been constructed; it doesn't list all the object files.  I
sent JC a Makefile patch to build libexpat.a; I haven't checked the
semi-public release of Expat at thaiopensource.com/whatever-it-was to
see if he incorporated it or not.
