Subject BeOS shared lib problems (was: Re: cvs commit: httpd-2.0 configure.in)
Date Fri, 22 Dec 2000 22:23:04 GMT
What is this "human intervention" that you mention?

And are you saying that BeOS has no shared libraries? It isn't like we'd be
loading libaprutil.so dynamically... I'd expect the loader to automatically
pull that in when the executable is loaded.

Cheers,
