Hi there,

ax_lib_expat.m4 (serial 9) overwrites the $LIBS variable during call. The attached version fixes this bug.

Further, $EXPAT_LIBS alse returns flags ("-L...") in EXPAT_LIBS, which apparently should rather belong to LDFLAGS and not to LIBS. Following the example of the BOOST library, the attached version therefore adds another substituted variable (EXPAT_LDFLAGS) and correctly splits the values into EXPAT_LDFLAGS and EXPAT_LIBS.
