Subject Re: Building and Linking 3rd Party Modules within Apache 2.0 Source Tree
Date Wed, 18 Oct 2000 17:38:45 GMT
None of this applies to a DSO module, of course.  I agree that it is a bit
annoying to need autoconf/automake/libtool to compile an external module
into Apache statically, but the average user would hopefully be using DSO
to add external modules to Apache.
