No, expat isn't supported. I originally thought it would be fairly easy
to switch between libxml and expat, and was encouraged to use libxml
because many other applications were using that, and having two xml
parsing libraries in core at once doesn't make a lot of sense.

It would be great if you wanted to try and figure out how to make expat
work again; fontconfig doesn't have any complicated demands on an XML
