Migrate expat from sourceforge to github

Luc Hermitte requested to merge lhermitte/otb:MigrateExpatToGithub into develop


Build fails because a new version of expat is out.


Builds should never fail when a new version of expat, or any other 3rd party component, is out.

Implementation Details

Expat is officially migrating from SF to GH since 2022-01-09.

Also, downloading expat packets from GH will be more resilient as the URLs aren't discarded every time a new version is out.

Note: at this moment, there exists a version 2.4.9, but this commit/MR only focuses on changing the official source repository.
