It _looks_ (I'm not implying it does), that it's using a some sort of
OSF/MkLinux thing... In pthread.h, this is what I found:

 * Copyright 1996 1995 by Open Software Foundation, Inc. 1997 1996 [...]
 * MkLinux

I know (thanks David for trying to make me understand what was going on! :)
The story doesn't change...

You're more than welcome to borrow an account on one of my OS/X 10.1.3
boxes... :)

I know, and "complained" politely already on dev@httpd :) Someone was
supposed to come up with a patch :)

Yessir :) Or use the set of sem_... functions (but I believe Jim already
replied to that)...

Usual stuff... Lot's a 0s and some 1s (but all in the wrong places! :)

#define APR_USE_FLOCK_SERIALIZE           0
#define APR_USE_FCNTL_SERIALIZE           1

#define APR_HAS_FLOCK_SERIALIZE           1
#define APR_HAS_FCNTL_SERIALIZE           1
#define APR_HAS_RWLOCK_SERIALIZE          0
