I try to use the dbus-python package. It compile fine, but when
I try to use it on the target, I get this error:

# python

>>> import dbus

    from xml.parsers.expat import ExpatError, ParserCreate
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xml/parsers/expat.py", line 4, in ?
ImportError: No module named pyexpat

The strange thing is that there seem to be no pyexpat package in
buildroot yet. So I don't understand how dbus-python can be
functional on the target.
