It builds OK here with jdk and using your options as above. In that part
of the build, I have:

[build XCU] en-US
[build ECH] CustomTarget/instsetoo_native/setup/unorc
[build ECH] CustomTarget/instsetoo_native/setup/fundamentalrc
[build ECH] CustomTarget/instsetoo_native/setup/lounorc
[build GPF] CustomTarget/filter/source/svg/tokens.gperf
[build PY ] CustomTarget/filter/source/svg/svgscript.hxx
[build ECH] CustomTarget/i18npool/collator/lrl_include.hxx
[build CXX] shell/source/all/xml_parser.cxx
[build GPF] CustomTarget/sdext/pdfimport/hash.cxx
[build CXX] l10ntools/source/helper.cxx
[build CXX] l10ntools/source/common.cxx
[build CXX] l10ntools/source/merge.cxx
[build CXX] l10ntools/source/po.cxx
[build CUS] extras/fonts

Maybe you could try reinstalling your expat package, since the error
seems to implicate the expat header files.
