  +   <P>
  +   If the server won't compile on your system, it is probably due to one
  +   of the following causes:
  +   </P>
  +   <UL>
  +    <LI><STRONG>The <SAMP>Configure</SAMP> script doesn't recognize
your system
  +     environment.</STRONG>
  +     <BR>
  +     This might be either because it's completely unknown or because
  +     the specific environment (include files, OS version, <EM>et
  +     cetera</EM>) isn't explicitly handled.  If this happens, you may
  +     need to port the server to your OS yourself.
  +    </LI>
  +    <LI><STRONG>Your system's C compiler is garbage.</STRONG>
  +     <BR>
  +     Some operating systems include a default C compiler that is either
  +     not ANSI C-compliant or suffers from other deficiencies.  The usual
  +     recommendation in cases like this is to acquire, install, and use
  +     <SAMP>gcc</SAMP>.
  +    </LI>
  +    <LI><STRONG>Your <SAMP>include</SAMP> files may be confused.</STRONG>
  +     <BR>
  +     In some cases, we have found that a compiler installation or system
  +     upgrade has left the C header files in an inconsistent state.  Make
  +     sure that your include directory tree is in sync with the compiler and
  +     the operating system.
  +    </LI>
  +    <LI><STRONG>Your operating system or compiler may be out of
  +     revision.</STRONG> 
  +     <BR>
  +     Software vendors (including those that develop operating systems)
  +     issue new releases for a reason; sometimes to add functionality, but
  +     more often to fix bugs that have been discovered.  Try upgrading
  +     your compiler and/or your operating system.
  +    </LI>
  +   </UL>
  +   <P>
  +   The Apache Group tests the ability to build the server on many
  +   different platforms.  Unfortunately, we can't test all of the OS
  +   platforms there are.  If you have verified that none of the above
  +   issues is the cause of your problem, and it hasn't been reported
  +   before, please submit a
  +   <A
  +    HREF="http://www.apache.org/bugdb.cgi"
  +   >problem report</A>.
  +   Be sure to include <EM>complete</EM> details, such as the compiler
  +   &amp; OS versions and exact error messages.
  +   </P>
