I think there could be a bug in the wxWidgets build and install script
and/or package for your OS (and possibly linux).

If you do a

$ cd /svn/wxWidgets

$ find . -name '*expat*'

you see that wxWidgets is nesting a SVN checkout of expat into their tree.

Yet who installs this library?   I think the problem is basically that
expat is not being installed, simple as that.

IMO the problem in is in the wxWidgets *package* for your OS (and
linux), which should probably have a dependency in it for expat.
