Subject Re: Apache *PORTABLE* Runtime?

Well, I gave a look again into the patch and I think it should work because in reality the
win32 port was already existing but not for msys, that's why the patch mostly touches the
configure scripts... since you are not giving much details except your surprise, I can guess
you are not able to apply a patch correctly or the content of patched files changed in a manner
that they could not be updated directly (a newer patch made on current trunk would be required
in that case).

I'm not a developer of APR so I have not title to speak but seriously, you should avoid comments
like this one: people may think you are just trying to make a flame war and they will ignore
you and perhaps the patch too (sad...)

Sincerely,

Carlo Bramini.
