 This is related to a toolchain issue I had because I had homebrew
 installed.  In particular, I built diffutils-for-muniversal using part of
 the homebrew compile toolchain.  So I blew away homebrew and rebuilt
 diffutils, but when I did, I got the following scary warning/error:
 root at rcook-iMac (part 1 (main)): port install diffutils-for-muniversal
 diffutils-for-muniversal is known to fail. Try to install anyway? [y/N]: y
 I said "y" and it installed and now expat does build correctly.
 So I think right now, it's just a bug in the diffutils installer, but
 definitely does not appear to be an expat problem.
