Hi Benjamin,
I'm afraid that you're doing that work right now, and not a week before :-)
because I just released a new MSYS GRASS environment, while it would be perfect to also add Xerces and Expat support to both GDAL and GRASS (only Xerces)
it will be on the next time
anyway I'm not sure about Expat; did you read this? http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/BuildingWithMinGW
the libexpat.dll.a is the import static library used while building the shared one; it is used (with the -lexpat.dll istruction) while building executables
but I hope to fail and you're right ;-)

... and on to Expat:
that one is very simple to fix. After the "make install", just
stay in the Expat source dir and do:

        rm /usr/lib/libexpat.dll.a

        install .libs/libexpat-1.dll /usr/lib/libexpat.dll

(that's assuming you have Expat installed in /usr/lib,
of course).

I have not actually tried compiling the whole of GDAL with
Xerces-C and Expat support yet, only got the configure
script to run through.

So there might be more trouble waiting ...
