Subject Patch for apr-util/xml expat detection
Date Sun, 13 Jan 2002 07:42:44 GMT
The logic in apr-util/build/apu-conf.m4 for finding expat in a
directory specified by the user with --with-expat is not quite
correct.  I'm not sure what all the cases it is looking for are, but
it leaves out at least one: a normal expat 1.95.2 installation under

Furthermore, the expat include dir thus found never made it into
xml/Makefile because xml/Makefile.in references APR_INCLUDES but
apu-conf.m4 puts the expat include dir in INCLUDES.  I arbitrarily
changed this to put the include dir in APR_INCLUDES; i'm not sure if
this is the correct fix or if xml/Makefile.in should be corrected.
