    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new                        
Priority:  major   |   Component:  Package                    
 Version:          |    Keywords:  gpsbabel, wingrass         

 osgeo4w's build of gpsbabel is not working on GPX files, which is a major
 (the primary?) reason for shipping gpsbabel in the first place. the error
 message when you try to use it is:

 GPX: This build excluded GPX support because expat was not installed.

 see also #9 and #171, and the GRASS version of this bug:

 tested in a GRASS 6.5svn nightly wingrass build from the last week.
