Subject Re: How to rebuild Apache-2.0.39_3 from FreeBSD port with extra CFLAGS?
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2002 23:47:36 GMT
set this variable in your environment prior to running the configure 
scripts. the configure scripts preserve current environment while 
testing. this is what we're doing to affect the post configuration build 
on solaris for 2.0.35
