Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45754] New: autoconf macros
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2008 20:22:59 GMT
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=45754

           Summary: autoconf macros
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Build
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ms419@freezone.co.uk


I would like to distribute the CHECK_APACHE() autoconf macro from mod_skeleton,
which is useful for building Apache modules, with Apache httpd, like Apache
already distributes Makefile fragments in build/*.mk:
http://modskeleton.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/m4/apache.m4

This macro checks that Apche is installed, that it is at least a given version,
and sets up appropriate build flags.

Many Apache modules already use this macro in their build systems, e.g.
mod_gnutls: http://svn.outoforder.cc/svn/mod_gnutls/trunk/m4/apache.m4

- and it is common for projects to distribute autoconf macros which help other
projects build against them, e.g. the AM_PATH_LIBGNUTLS() macro from
libgnutls.m4:
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gnutls.git;a=blob;f=lib/libgnutls.m4

I would like to distribute the CHECK_APACHE() autoconf macro with Apache httpd
because then when improvements are made, they would benefit all modules,
instead of each module maintaining their own version of this macro.
