Thank you for the prompt reply.

Hmm... This sound plausible. I am running RH 7.3 or so. Are you
suggesting I:

1. Compile expat.
2. Create Perl libraries against expat
3. Install expat and the libraries in the appropriate place(s).

If so, I believe I can do this as long as I know where to save the
resulting binaries and libraries (modules). Where? I don't see expat,
and what Perl library am I replacing in perllib?
