Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47572] New: It would be nice if apr configure --with-dbm=xdbm would imply --with-xdbm
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2009 13:29:31 GMT

           Summary: It would be nice if apr configure --with-dbm=xdbm
                    would imply --with-xdbm
           Product: APR
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: APR
        AssignedTo: bugs@apr.apache.org
        ReportedBy: poirier@pobox.com

When I configure apr to use gdbm:

./configure --with-dbm=gdbm

but forget to include --with-gdbm, then apr gets built in a way that requires
apr_gdbm, but doesn't build apr_gdbm.  The result is that code that tries to
use apr_dbm, e.g. htdbm, fails.

It would be nice if specifying --with-dbm=gdbm would automatically add
--with-gdbm, or at least result in an error if --with-gdbm wasn't specified.

I assume the same occurs with other choices for --with-dbm, but haven't checked

I'll look into this further when I have time, but I'm a novice with autoconf,
so if someone who knows this area better wants to look at it, that's fine with
