TclExpat - the Tcl interface to expat - builds expat as a shared library.
That's the easiest way to load the package into a Tcl interpreter.
Building a shared library is quite easy. TclExpat builds expat in the
usual way, but adds the -PIC flag. It then takes the object files and
constructs the shared library. The know-how on how to do that on various
platforms is actually taken from the Tcl configuration, since Tcl is
very good at determining which compile and link flags are ncessary.
I can dig up some more specific details if you require.
I don't the answer to (3), but I think sending them to JC is the way to go.
