Hi all,

I found a couple of problems in building libwww 5.2.6 with expat/XML
on Linux.

First, and this I'm not sure it's really a libwww/expat problem, but
I never had it with any other package, libtool (aarrrgh!!! libtool again!)
does not seem to like '~' in $PATH. My $PATH was like PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:~/bin
and this made libtool crashing when installing expat (as if ~ was changed
into a newline in one of the regular expression where $PATH is used). I
changed ~/bin into /home/raff/bin and everything went fine from there.

Second, the installation for expat only install the libraries but not
the include files. And HTXML.h includes xmlparse.h (for XML_Parsers ?).
I manually copied xmlparse.h in /usr/local/include and that did the trick.
