I *am* a C programmer, and the problem is obviously that the XMLCALL macro
isn't getting defined, but I can't see why it wouldn't.  The expat.h in the
port will define it as long as __GNUC__ is defined, which it should be for
any version of gcc I can recall.  Non of the usual -questions information
is included in the message (see for
guidance), and the problem does not occur on my system (-STABLE and ports
updated within the last week).
