I do not want to hijack anyone's thread, so a quick update on the build status of 2.4.X before Xmas (and AIX).

The error is in building the support tools (ab fails). Maybe a new export file is needed? I do not know how to make one :(

If anyone has a suggestion (and/or lesson) I'll try and work on it this weekend, otherwise on Monday.
