If your using libpd, you can simple remove the pure-data/extra/expr~ folder and com[ile it without expr.

The license in the expr src folder is LGPL, but the license in the source headers is GPL and the following is printed to console when first loading the external: "expr, expr~, fexpr~ version 0.4 under GNU General Public License ". I will leave it out until those parts of the code are explicitly changed. If this has already happened, then we need to merge in those changes to libpd. So far, as Miller suggests, I've been replacing [expr] with regular math objects.
