Hi Nikola,

according to this build log (look for the line with '-o xetex ') xetex is
linked explicitly only with libfontconfig, which in turn most probably
depends on libexpat and others. The output of ldd shows all dependencies,
explicit or implicit.  In order to see only the explicit dependencies you
can, e.g., use 'objdump -p xetex'.
