You don't need, you should grep your system's other *.la 
files and remove any reference to, or replace them with 
references of -lexpat so the linker (libtool in this case) will directly 
link to the .so instead of trying to pull the info from the .la

Something like:

find /usr -name '*.la' -exec grep {} +

Then either delete the files it finds, or edit them as I suggested before

But yeah, definately wrong list, this question is more suitable for the 
libtool mailing list, or perhaps your distribution's
