Hmm. I see. It is possible that it is failing the link of the shared lib.
Thus, if you disable the shared lib build, then we'd be okay for now.

We will want to put it back to dynamic library building at some point,

It is in the top-level configure now. Just update from CVS and try it.

It's in there now. In the future, we could always add it only for BeOS, but
I'd think that if BeOS is just never going to get it right, then we do that
within aprutil itself. There may be some things that we can do to/with
libtool itself to make this smoother.

In any case, we'd want to localize the change within aprutil. If Apache
can't deal with a dynamic library of aprutil, there is no reason to expect
that others will.
