           Summary: apxs dependency on httpd breaks cross-compilation of
                    other packages
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Build
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: lstefani@fortresstech.com


With proper environment variables, --host= and --target options, Apache 2.2.3 
can be cross-compiled successfully.  However, the bin/apxs PERL script has an 
implicit dependency on bin/httpd, which causes a problem when building other 
modules.

For example, when adding PHP 5.1.6 to Apache 2.2.3, the --with-apxs2= option 
is used on the PHP configure line to point to apxs.  PHP needs to run apxs to 
determine the include paths, CFLAGS, etc. used to build Apache.  This fails on 
a cross-compiled environment when apxs tries to execute httpd on the host 
system.

apxs should become truly platform-independent and not rely on binaries that 
cannot be run on the build system.
