Subject RE: Reporting on Patches of FreeBSD ports (fwd)
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2001 20:58:49 GMT
I saw we have similar same problems.

I'm working on Apache 2.0 RPM (on Redhat boxes)

So I try to have it more 'FHS' compatible, and
so it's a pain since many parts in conf/build
process still assume that everything is under $prefix.

Some others points :

- It could be fine also to add --with-ssl-port 

- is installed under $prefix/build
  whereas I'd like to put it on /usr/lib/apache2
  (which could be libexecdir). 
  apxs could be extended to report
  path via a query like : apxs -q CONFIG_VARS.MK

I'm +1000 with httpd installed on sbindir instead
of bindir, which is a general policy for unix daemons.
