Astonshingly, I have been doing the very same thing this week...

I think you have missed compiling the Apache Portable Runtime library. What I did was:

- go to and get the latest apr snapshot (it seems they do not have a "release"
- unpack it in /tmp, then build it using:

	Note that you need libtool to use buildconf - you can get this from

- now when you compile webapp, you should say:

	./configure --with-apxs --with-apr=/tmp/apr

	and it will pick up the libraries when building. As far as I understand, the APR libs are
compiled into so you don't need to keep APR..
