Subject [patch] ./configure --activate-module bugfix
Date Sat, 28 Aug 1999 01:11:44 GMT

I just ran into an interesting bug in the configure script.
The --activate-module option does not work correctly with the --enable-shared

In my configuration I had:

./configure \
--activate-module=src/modules/extra/mod_frontpage.c \

and mod_frontpage was built as a static module.

The code that implements --activate-module was appending "AddModule
modules/extra/mod_frontpage.c" to the $addconf file, which should really be the
same filename with an ".o" extension as evidenced by behavior --add-module
option. The problem was that the sed commands that implement
the --enable-shared option by converting the AddModule commands to SharedModule
commands don't match AddModule lines with .c extensions.

Appended is a patch to fix this by making the --activate-module option add
AddModule lines ending in .o.
