Subject RE: binary builds currently broken!, was Re: Apache 1.3.8 pre-release tarball available for testing
Date Tue, 10 Aug 1999 14:58:13 GMT
I'm seeing the following:

1. This only affects the cgi-bin and icon directory munging.
2. If we add into the configuration default files the absolute path of
/usr/local/apache, all is well.

Agreed?
