nametab.h in expat

  I'm evaluating the expat XML parser for use in a cable TV set-top 
box.  Expat seems to be one of the
  smaller parsers out there, which is what I was looking for.

  But I will be cross-compiling it to run on the set-top box and
  discovered something a little strange about expat's build process.  First 
it compiles a program called
  "gennmtab" and runs it.  When gennmtab runs, it creates a header file 
called nametab.h in the xmltok
  directory.  Then the build continues normally.

  Does anyone know what this header file is used for?  Is it
  platform-dependent?  In otherwords, does the "gennmtab" program have to 
execute on the same platform
  the package is being built for?  Is this a problem for cross-compiling?

  I ran gennmtab on intel hardware running NT and sparc hardware running 
solaris and the two nametab.h
  files produced were identical, but I don't know if they would be 
different for other platforms.

  Any insights would be most appreciated.
