Hi Tony,

            Thanks for the info. I will try “configure” with these options. But which is the parameter here that will make a difference. I had exported CC earlier. You are suggesting to set CPPFLAGS. But how will this preprocessor directive make a difference? Sorry if I am asking too many questions but I am trying to understand.

Here's how I configure Apache 2.0.52 for AIX, prior to issuing a 'make':

CC="xlc_r"; export CC
"./configure" \
"--prefix=/usr/local/apache" \
"--with-mpm=worker" \
"--without-berkeley-db" \
"--enable-dav=static" \
"--enable-dav_fs=static" \
"--with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl" \
"--enable-ssl=static" \
"--with-egd=/etc/entropy" \

            I am trying to compile an apache httpd module using a makefile and not using apxs. But when I try to boot apache, it throws the following error


Syntax error on line 238 of /home/rbalaji/usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf:

Cannot load /home/rbalaji/usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_dyso.so into server: \t0

509-026 System error: Cannot run a file that does not have a valid format.


Looks like apxs binds in some flags and generates some register functions into the files before compiling. I am really not sure what it does.

            But originally, if I have a class keyword in my source files, apxs doesnot compile it at all. I am using xlc compiler on AIX and I have configured apache to use this compiler before the configure stage itself. Can anybody tell me what the missing link is? Is it impossible to work with C++ on apache. (sounds illogical though)

Your help will really really be significant to solve one of our problems.
