Subject [PATCH] apache-1.3 configure: more verbosity
Date Mon, 26 Feb 2001 20:08:12 GMT
In apache-1.3, configure is hand-written, not generated. It creates
a config.status which holds the last invocation switches, so you can
easily re-configure with the same switches (alas, the environment is
not frozen, and you can override the behavior of configure via
environment variables, and thus the reproduceability and documentation
of the current configuration settings in config.status is somewhat
pointless. But that is "compatible" with GNU-generated configures).

If you ever had several apache directories in parallel, building for
different scenarios, you may have wished that config.status  (or
configure for that matter) would print the actual "--prefix" setting,
for example, so that you could control whether you invoked the right

The following patch does just that: it prints all overridden path
settings, so that you can control easily if you configured the right
server ;-)
