Personally, probably not. But my issue with it was that MPI's build
behaviour differ from all the other libraries. It's a minor thing anyway
because it's well documented both in the docs, and in the text return
from the build screen when building without specifying --without-mpi.

Not yet. Trac kinda confuses me. :D I never encountered the expat issue
before either because I've only just upgraded to 1.39, and it's the
first time I tried building with expat. I'll file something though.
