I am having a bit of
a problem getting apr-iconv v0.9.2 to build on RH Linux 7.3 and Mac OS X 10.2.
Is this package required to build apr-util?
The config file on
Linux seems to be able to find the native iconv, so I suspect it isn't required
there, but no equivalent is found on Mac OS X.
The problem seems to
be that the apr-iconv configure script is expecting libtool 1.3 (looking for
ltconfig) but these platforms use libtool and glibtool 1.4.2, which
does not have ltconfig. Since this seems to be an obvious problem, I can
only assume that I am doing something stupidly wrong trying to build APR. Can
somebody verify that these are the correct steps:
And here are the
final few lines of output from running configure in apr-iconv on Mac OS
checking if gcc
supports -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions... yes
checking whether the linker
(/usr/bin/ld) supports shared libraries... yes
checking how to hardcode
library paths into programs... unsupported
checking whether stripping
libraries is possible... no
checking dynamic linker characteristics...
checking if libtool supports shared libraries...
checking whether to build shared libraries... yes
checking whether to
build static libraries... yes
