Subject Re: Why is r->handler a garbled string?

I've solved the problem, though I may not exactly understand how.

It was an issue with the way I was building the module, which was  
fixed once I added in the flags I got from "apr-config --cppflags".   
(I used to rant that the mostly-undocumented design change to apxs in  
apache 2.0 was one of the many obstacles in maintaining this multi- 
source-file C++ module for both apache 1.3 and apache 2.  But apr- 
config actually makes up for it).

So I think my module had a struct alignment issue which was somehow  
fixed by something in " -DSOLARIS2=11 -D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS -

Yes, in fact the package does contain config.nice, which begins:

CC="/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc"; export CC
CFLAGS="-xO3 -xarch=386 -xchip=pentium -xspace -Xa  -xildoff - 

Those flags alone don't do the trick for me, but the ones from apr- 
config make it all work.
