Subject PR 10163, location of config_vars.mk
Date Wed, 13 Mar 2002 18:09:27 GMT
short form: 

I want to move config_vars.mk from top_builddir to
top_builddir/build/config_vars.mk.  Okay?

long form:

PR 10163 deals with some hard-coded paths that broke the makefile
created by apxs -g.  I just committed what ordinarily would make it
work, except for a basic problem:

. Apache build puts config_vars.mk in top_builddir
. Apache install puts config_vars.mk in prefix/build
. apxs wants to use snippets of Apache build support (e.g., rules.mk)
  which assume that config_vars.mk is not in the build subdirectory

To get apxs's use of rules.mk et al to work config_vars.mk needs to be
in a consistent place (in or out of the build subdirectory for both
Apache build and the installed copy of config_vars.mk).

The easiest fix is to install config_vars.mk into prefix, but that is
ugly.  Always putting it in the build subdirectory seems nicer.  But I
can't help but wonder why it isn't there already.  Are there any
problems with that?
