 This is due to the use of --without-subdirs configure option: it prevents
it from creating the makefiles under samples and so the samples directory
itself is not created neither. It would be possible to conditionally use
"samples" in "make [dist]clean", but it has just somehow never seemed like
being worth the trouble.

 I've actually already fixed this in this recent commit:


GC> There's that weirdness again.
GC> configure: WARNING: Defaulting to the builtin regex library for Unicode 

 This one is just due to the fact that we never switched to a regex library
with Unicode support. It's a long standing TODO as it would be better to
use a better tested and more actively developed regex library rather than
our own code, but, again, this just hasn't ever been really urgent. Still,
it's almost certainly useless to warn anybody about it, especially now that
Unicode build is not only the default but practically the only used one, so
we should probably at least remove the warning...

 I don't think the cross-compiler provides zlib, only the native compiler
includes it. At least I can't find zlib.h on my system and, looking in
config.log, neither can configure.

 It's harmless and we don't want to touch the 3rd party code in src/expat
too much.

 I'd still expect it to be faster. I'll try to check g++5 one of these
