Well, just slightly confused.
On my system I have "tested" in as much as I can https://hostname and it says "It works!".
What I need some assistence with perhaps is determeing which "mpm" binary was built, as I am only building one with 2.2.22 at the moment.

re: Having only one script - I am not surprised there must be more than one, but I hoped :)
There are actually two scripts - one that does the configure/make/make install, and one that creates the
template needed to make the package.

FYI: I am working on getting a build for a svn client as well. AND - I am doing these things because I am very tired of having to download 10 to 20 .rpm packages, each with moving dependancies it seems, in order to install something that is supposed readily available. In short, I am trying to make some packages that just 'install' with saying - you need this too, and then when you install that - it says and I need this first, etc etc.

In a word, boring.

FYI: current tools (IBM and others) use /opt/freeware as their main installation area - so I am opting for /opt/* (no freeware in the name) for packages like coreutils, libz, pcre, apr, apr-util, etc. and applications (packaging) such as httpd and svn in /opt/httpd, /opt/svn. With your wealth of prior experience - if you see a trap I am setting for myself, please warn me - and better - lead me to safety.

regards, Michael

yeah, that was the idea...  thanks!

As Graham mentioned, expect to have different scripts for different
releases and do the right thing for each release.  It isn't a good
thing if people who play with  configure more often but might not know
the ancient history stare at the script and wonder about the odd
choice of arguments.  (I happen to remember about the AIX/--enable-so
issue from long ago, but that needs to die.)

If it doesn't build them shared using the appropriate configure args,
that's what needs to be fixed.  (Most people won't use this script.)
