Don't do this. You rather need to get all references to libexpat.so.4 out of 
your system. Remove the symlink, rebuild/reinstall fontconfig and build 
p5-XML-Parser from source. In general, you really can't use the 5.2.1-R 
packages from the FTP servers anymore once you've installed up-to-date ports, 
the packages are simply too old and will have all sorts of stale references.
