Subject libtool in APR.
Date Thu, 30 Mar 2000 23:49:32 GMT

Did we ever come to a conclusion about using libtool in APR?  I am not
talking about using libtool to build Apache modules, just using libtool to
load dynamic modules within APR.

The arguments for are:

1)  Libtool has done the work already
2)  It is mostly portable
3)  on platforms where it isn't portable, we can use our own code until
libtool is fixed.

The arguments against are:

1)  APR was incredibly small and easy to build and install.  The only
external library we used to require was shmem, and that is included in our
2)  We have code to load dso's that seems to work.

I have no strong feelings one way or the other, but I would like to get
this resolved ASAP.
