I have done some further testing of the tests.
Looks like the only testxlate that does not pass (on my AIX system) is utf-8 <--> utf-7.

The segmentation failure seems to arise when NULL arguments are provided as input variables to apr_xlate_conv_buffer()

Assuming a fail iconv xlate of utf-8 with utf-7 is not going be overbearing for modern applications my non-vote is +1.

(note: I cut out my posting, same as above, to someone "directly" to not overly clutter the list.) I "dislike" reply-all, and well, stuff happens.

Full CHANGES are here:

[+1]  Release apr-util 1.5.1 as GA

My test results:

All problems are no regressions from 1.4.1 or 1.5.0.


- some libtool m4 files not deleted by buildconf (see below)

- crypto configure for OpenSSL at least fails on Solaris,
    because when linking against the libssl we need
    the additional flags "-ldl -lsocket -lnsl". Currently
    there's no way to fix this apart from hacking configure.
    For Linux I'm not sure, but likely you'll need "-ldl".

- LDADD flags are typically not respected during configure.

- configure fails for Berkeley DB in non-standard path,
    because it doesn't add an rpath to conftest and then tries
    to run the compiled conftest binary.

- no rpath for ldap, mysql and crypto dso extensions. So no
    way to run the result without LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
    Interesting: the m4 file does add an rpath only for oracle.
    Since there's no platform independent way to add rpath,
    we might want to remove it everywhere (and users would need
    to use the respective LDADD variables).

- no rpath for dependency libs when building without dso support,
    e.g. when the ldap, crypto, mysql, oracle, sqlite etc. extensions
    are all in the big apr util library.

- testall sometimes fails in testpass on Linux and often fails
   in testcrypto when testing nss passphrase (see below).

- Windows Build system:
    - all *.dep and *.mak files are missing
    - test/testutildll.dsp is the only DSP containing "Release9x" and
      "Debug9x" configuration info. IMHO that's obsolete and could
      be removed.


- svn compared with gz, bz2 and zip only expected differences
    except for the following in the directory xml/expat/conftools
    which are not a blocker;
    IMHO we could remove those at the and of buildconf

- files signed, checksums correct

- built and made check on the following platforms:

    - Solaris 8 and 10 Sparc (gcc 4.1.2 resp. 4.7.2)
    - SuSE Linux Enterprise 10 32 Bit and 10 and 11 64 Bit
    - RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 64 Bit

    - using all combinations of:

      - apr 1.4.6 / 1.4.x r1372028
      - expat builtin / 2.1.0
      - dso disable / enable
      - Berkeley DB 5.3.21
      - sqlite
      - mysql 6.0.2 (only Solaris)
      - oracle (Solaris 10), resp. (Solaris 8)
      - platform nss (Solaris 10 and RHEL 5 and 6)

- make check for the successful build ran fine for 111 build,
   but failed for 57 builds. The failures for "testpass" observed in
   1.5.0 are gone. Remaining ones:

    - one failure in testdbm on  SLES 11 without DSO,
      *not* reproducible (Failed 1 of 2)
      Though not reproducible exactly the same failure happened
      when testing 1.5.0. Maybe due to increased load during the
      parallel builds and checks on the virtualized server. Could
      be a race condition.

    - 16 failures only on RHEL 5 when DSO is disabled due to
      segmentation fault in testcrypto. Searching for the stack
      indicates, that the nss library might have been used after
      some sort of shutdown:

    - 56 failures in testcrypto
      testing crypto for nss gives errors on Solaris 10 and on RHEL
      where I had built crypto with nss and OpenSSL (no nss build
      on the other platforms):

     Error number -8186 is on Solaris and RHEL 6, -8128 on RHEL 5.
     I debugged into one failure for 1.5.0 and there the problem was,

algid = PK11_CreatePBEV2AlgorithmID(**key->cipherOid, key->cipherOid,

             SEC_OID_HMAC_SHA1, 0, iterations, &saltItem);

     returns NULL. Don't know how to fix that.

- I have not run the httpd test framework against those builds
