Subject How much effort to get Apache working with Mingw?
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2002 18:07:18 GMT

I was thinking to get Apache compiled with Mingw, but it seems like all 
your instructions are based on MVC++ (which I don't really want to pay 
for). Do you know how much would be needed to do for Apache to work with 
Mingw? Perl uses another make called "dmake" and has a separate makefile, 
but I'm not sure if that would be needed. I guess in theory just changing 
the compiler name to gcc would be enough, but that's in theory of course :) 
Has anyone ever tinkered with this? It would be a great alternative for 
win32 platforms, because it would allow more people to compile themselves.

Anyway, the real reason I'm asking is because I want to do mod_perl work 
with Mingw, which would make it easier to contribute. So I'm wondering: as 
Mingw uses the same runtime library as MS Visual C (MSVCRT) under the hood, 
would it be possible to compile DSO modules with Mingw and make them run 
with binary distributions of Apache?

Oh yeah: I'm talking 1.3 and 2.0 here, the best would be both.
