[tex-live] xetex and shared libraries

I installed TeX Live today on a server running CentOS.  I couldn't
create all format files.  The problem is:

$ ldd `which xetex`
	libfontconfig.so.1 => /usr/lib64/libfontconfig.so.1 (0x0000003705e00000)
	libexpat.so.1 => not found
	libfreetype.so.6 => /usr/lib64/libfreetype.so.6 (0x0000003706200000)
	libz.so.1 => /usr/lib64/libz.so.1 (0x00000037d8400000)
	libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so.6 (0x00000037d8800000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00000037d7c00000)
	libexpat.so.0 => /lib64/libexpat.so.0 (0x00000037db000000)
	/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00000037d7800000)

I have no root permissions there.  I didn't encounter this problem
with TL-2008, but I'm not sure, maybe I simply overlooked it. 

Is it possible to link libexpat.so.1 statically?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
