My intention was to give the user the choice if he want to use expat
regularly on the system but use libxml2 for building the libsvg package.
But in the end this makes not really sense and the proposal of you both
is of course a little bit more simplify. Sometime I'm thinking to

Yes, in v1 there wasn't this dependencies. As I must see the
configure.in lacks the need for both packages. But while testing after a
cleanup of the build environment I saw  build errors because of missed
header png.h and jpeglib.h, jerror.h.

Will set the packages in the Config.in and rework the patch again.

Thanks for patience with me!
