Subject [PATCH] some STATUS info, volunteering
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2001 23:59:20 GMT
I've been fooling around with this for the last week or so and I have
some more clues:

- any module that is declared with APACHE_MODULE(.... most) while we have
  --enable-mods-shared=most is properly build into a DSO.

- if the module is declared with APACHE_MODULE(.... yes) then it doesn't
  ever get the chance to become a DSO. The current workaround is to
  explicitly declare --enable-foo=shared for each module that currently
  defaults to static.

I can't just take --enable-mods-shared=most and convert all
APACHE_MODULE(.... yes) decls into "most" or "shared", because there
are some modules that can not or should not be compiled as DSOs, like
mod_so and mod_http.

I'll try to come up with something in the next couple days.
