Subject script to build binary releases
Date Mon, 18 Aug 1997 05:12:32 GMT
Pay attention now.  If you have access to build a binary on a particular
platform, this is the easy way to do it.  Can't guarentee it will be
right, but it will certainly make my life easier for building binary

# Marc Slemko (
# Script to make Apache binary releases.  The below variables must be
# set correctly, and both the tarball and the Configuration file that
# you wish to use must be present in the cwd before running the script

# setup to give them a warning that things didn't finish correctly
# since I am too lazy to put proper error messages everywhere
trap 'echo ERROR: abnormal exit, binary release not properly built; exit 1' 0 1 2 3 15

# release is the release of the Apache version that is being built.
# It must also be the base name of the tarball and the name of the
# directory that it is untarred into
# conf is the Configuration file that you wish to use to build httpd
# gzcat should be set to something that will take a .tar.gz as an 
# argument and send the uncompressed .tar to stdout.  On some systems,
# it will be zcat
# if md5 exists, it will be used to generate a md5 hash for the
# generated files.  Full path is necessary.

# ensure proper permissions
