As suggested I checked for duplicate ptlib ( using synaptic package manager).  For some strange reason it is showing only libpt2.10.4 and libpt-dev as installed.  There is no ptlib-2.10.9 according to synaptic.  It is as though the entire install I did of ptlib 2.10.9 vanished!  So I repeated the ptlib2.10.9 again just now using the following steps:
1. downloaded ptlib-2.10.9.tar.xz from ekiga site
2.  extracted to get the folder ptlib-2.10.9
3.  opened terminal; cd to folder ptlib-2.10.9
4.  ./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install
5.  all the steps seem to have gone without any error (at least none that I could see).
6.  Checked again using synaptic.  Lo and behold it still shows only  libpt2.10.4 and libpt-dev as installed!No sign of 2.10.9 anywhere!

Remove your ptlib, opal installations. Additionally, remove all ptlib, opal and ekiga with synaptic.

Afterwards install ptlib, opal and ekiga and there will be no confusion.

I am trying to install ekiga 4.0 from sources on mint linux.  I downloaded all the stable versions.  I then compiled ptlib first followed by opal and am now trying to configure ekiga.

I am getting stuck on the following error:
"checking for PTLIB support for expat... no
configure: error: you need ptlib expat support to compile ekiga"

I used grep as follows to check:
"grep -i expat /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ptlib.pc"

grep returned lot of stuff but mainly it showed:
Libs.private: -lexpat

I take the above to mean that the ptlib was compiled with expat support.  I could be wrong but this is the limit of my knowledge.  Someone please help!

Maybe you have two ptlib installed: one with and the other without expat
support, and configure gets confused.  Could you check that?
