did you make sure to remove the version of libexpat that shipped with 
RH8? Installing from source puts things in /usr/local/lib/ but stuff 
shipped from Red Hat is in /usr/lib. Try removing anything to do with 
libexpat from /usr/lib, install the fresh version of libexpat, again, 
and as root do /sbin/ldconfig. You might need to do /sbin/ldconfig a 
couple of times due to some Red Hat wierdness.

good luck
