Subject Re: [VOTE] Release httpd 2.3.4-alpha
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2009 18:52:33 GMT
I pull zlib from a non-os location because the build does not/did not find
the os location. I should try removing it and see if configure can find it
in /usr/lib and/or /usr/local/lib - in both locations.

With building for AIX I am accesstomed to "issues" and I work a long time to
get as transparent a solution as possible. My time to work on things like
this is non-linear - some days I have time available, and then a week or
more I must leave it idle.

If my contribution is of any interest, please let me know, and I shall
contribute as I can. I do appreciate the open replies I have received since
joining the list last September.

I consider myself more a tester than a developer, but was told the test list
was being merged into dev. Hence, I also feel unqualified to vote - and
refrain from voting.

I have a question regarding pcre. What minimal level is needed. While I
cannot compile 8.0 without building a new build server maybe the 7.8
version, if that is minimal, is possible.

IF I understand some of the mails correctly, it is npot all of pcre that is
needed, just some particular parts - that may be different across different

Whether it is before alpha, or after alpha - for me to build anything 2.3.+
I will need assistence with getting the needed parts built.

Many thanks for all the hard work
