Subject Re: [PATCH Attachment 28632, Bug 51257] Build failed when cross-compiling: ./gen_test_char: cannot execute binary file
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 08:39:16 GMT
Hi again Guenter,

I based the patch on the old 2003 patch
(http://marc.info/?l=apache-httpd-dev&m=106150997309208&w=2) that you
said looked harmless. 

Anyhow, exactly how do you want it to be solved? Since I have not worked
with configure scripts before all help is appreciated

Kind Regards,
Henrik
