thanks for the patch (again :)

i'm not entirely sure about this one. i usually really dislike adding
extra dependencies. because you never know what else it would drag.
especially in case where everything is built from sources. i think, in
this case, i could probably make an exception. these days libexpat is
pulled with pretty much anything. so i guess it really probably not
that big of a deal. ideally, i'd really want to get rid of openobex
library and just put obexapp into base system (where it belongs imo).
