Subject Re: svn commit: r178386 - /apr/apr/trunk/build/apr_hints.m4
Date Wed, 25 May 2005 18:49:25 GMT
   I just fixed APR to retry on EAGAIN.  We should not disable the  
use of poll() on Darwin.  It's behavior on 10.4 may be unusual, but  
it has not been shown to be broken.

   Let's back out this hints change.
