Well, you've got a 64bit system so you'd hope that you'd be building
64bit binaries in general ;-)

Honestly, I don't totally understand how it finds the paths and such,
but I think /usr/lib64 by default comes before /usr/lib when gcc and
friends are searching for libs.

I think the problems occurs because the configure system hard-codes
/usr/lib for expat instead of honoring the default (where it would
find another expat).

Presumably for the same reason that other pacakges Do The Right Thing
on 64bit Linux without extra tweaking.
