Well, I said that the problems we had in mod_webapp due to APR should be solved
in APR not in mod_webapp.
I think that not a -1 for using APR sources instead APR installation. It is just
a matter of configure/makefiles I am sure Pier will not -1 a proposal to support
both APR sources and APR installation in mod_webapp.

I am also worried with mod_webapp for Apache-2.0, what will happend when a
internal typedef of APR comming from httpd will be used by mod_webapp and will
be handled differently there because of different APR version?

I am not every happy to use APR sources in mod_webapp, because I use a "libapr
and --disable-shared" for mod_webapp on my test platforms (Linux and

It did not work because APR needs some "system libraries". To work-around this
problem I have added a LDFLAGS/CFLAGS in mod_webapp makefiles for that. I think
that the information about which "system libraries" are neeed should be provided

I have also tried with a shared libapr, but that was some weeks ago. I remember
MM problems and some "system library missing".
