Subject A little explanation about --enable-nonportable-atomics ?
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2009 15:29:50 GMT

could someone explain to me why a binary generated from 
atomic/unix/ia32.c would not be portable ?
Is this just because of APR_SIZEOF_VOIDP or are there any other reasons 
that I do not see ?

Another way to see ask the question is:
Provided that I build have both apr libraries for 32 and 64 bits, is it 
safe to specify --enable-nonportable-atomics,
(as I definitively do not want atomics to rely on mutex ?)

Many thanks for any coming explanations about this.
