Subject [users@httpd] Building Apache 2.0.48 (with openssl and zlib) for Windows Failure
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2003 13:56:31 GMT
I seem to be having some issues building Apache2 for Windows.  More
specifically, it looks like when it tries to compile zlib it bombs out. 

I'm still sort of new at this, so please bear with me if I'm missing

I am using the same instructions
( that the other
person noted a few days ago on this list.  I've used this one since
2.0.47, and was able to build it just fine.  However when I tried
2.0.48, and an updated zlib source (v 1.2.1), the compiler gives me this

NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make

It doesn't appear that "srclib\zlib\infblock.h" even exists.

I'm assuming that building with zlib-1.2.1 is now a bad idea, and that I
should stick with 1.1.4 (as both the devside and Apache documentation
has noted as being tested to compile correctly).  Would this be correct,
or am I missing something?

Attached is the buildlog.htm from the httpd-2.0.48 source root
directory.  My environment is a Windows 2000 Pro box with Microsoft
Visual Studio .NET, and I'm trying to build from the GUI.  I have tried
from the console with similar results.

Any insight would be appreciated.  :)
