or at least gives many errors which I suspect to be the
reason for not being able to make perl XML::Parser and
XML::Twig.

I'll attach my configure / make session's output

    Could this be a duplicate of (closed) bug #765227 ?
    In any case, please check out from CVS and try again.
    This might solve your problem.

    Assigned to Fred, as he claims to have access
    to a Mac OS X system.

    I don't know how to check out from CVS (I'm no programmer).
    I just downloaded the package from sourceforge.

    I already downloaded the previous version (1.95.5) and it
    compiled fine. It works (almos) perfectly except that I get
    a segmentation fault with my perl script on Mac OS while I
    get none on Intel Solaris with expat 1.95.6.

    In that case you will need to ask someone who knows
    how to check out from CVS, or wait for Expat 1.95.7.

    I no longer have really easy access to a Mac OS X box; might
    be able to get to it from remote.

    There is now a snapshot of the current code from CVS on the
    Expat website at this URL:

    Stephen, I'd really appreciate it if you could try this
    package on your platforms; I'd like to release 1.95.7 soon
    (it's been delayed too many times already).

    It compiled fine on Intel Solaris 9

    It also compiled fine on Mac OS X 10.2.8

    I still get segmentation faults with my perl script on Mac
    OS. But this might be a problem with perl itself. I don't
    know how to tell who is to blame: expat, XML::Parser,
    XML::wig or perl

    Looks like it is working now, so we can close this bug.
