Hi. Previously, I had only had experience with APR as embedded in httpd. I am working on creating some packages, starting with httpd, and I would prefer to do this with apr/apu as seperate from the other packages - as I understand the apr package is intended.

I updated the config.layout to use the following:

#   Adopt layout using /opt (read-only) filesystem conventions on AIX
#       Standard executables in /opt (shareable)
#       man pages at AIX standard location (/usr/share/man)
#       editable files, scripts in /etc and /var
<Layout AIX>
    prefix:        /opt
    exec_prefix:   /opt
    bindir:        ${exec_prefix}/bin
    sbindir:       ${exec_prefix}/sbin
    includedir:    ${exec_prefix}/include
    libdir:        ${exec_prefix}/lib
    libexecdir:    ${exec_prefix}/libexec
    sysconfdir:    /etc/apr
    datadir:       /usr/share
    errordir:      ${datadir}/error
    iconsdir:      ${datadir}/icons
    htdocsdir:     ${datadir}/htdocs
    mandir:        ${datadir}/man
    manualdir:     ${datadir}/manual
    cgidir:        ${datadir}/cgi-bin
    localstatedir: /var
    runtimedir:    ${localstatedir}/run
    logfiledir:    ${localstatedir}/logs
    proxycachedir: ${localstatedir}/proxy
    installbuilddir: ${localstatedir}/build
</Layout>

Maybe I broke it myself, moving the installbuilddir to /var/build - however, the command
root@x105:[/data/prj/apr-1.4.5]apr-1-config --installbuilddir      
/var/apr/build-1

does not seem to following this at all.

It seems to be ${datadir}/build-${APR_MAJOR_VERSION} -- in any case, where is the name change coming from?

regards,
Michael
