Subject [users@httpd] Configuring Apache2.0.54 --with-berkeley-db fails
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2005 09:10:27 GMT

Ooops - I posted this on user-info@... - my apologies!

I am desparate...

My intention is to access SubVersion via Apache's WebDAV feature.
I am trying to compile Apache 2.0.54 with support for BerkeleyDB 4.3. 
under Linux.

Compilation and installation of Berkeley DB worked fine and I installed 
it under /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3 (./configure;make;make install as root).

But when I try to configure Apache with the option --with-berkeley-db, 
it always ends with an error message although configure seems to find 
BerkeleyDB, as the log reports.

Could someone please give me a little help here? I would really 
appreciate your advice.

I am executing the following command(s) in a script (called runconf.httpd):
CFLAGS="-Wall -O3"
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3/lib -R/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3/lib"

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3/lib

./configure \
   --prefix=/usr/local/apache2.0.54 \
   --enable-auth-digest \
   --enable-deflate \
   --enable-so \
   --enable-dav \
   --enable-dav-fs \
   --enable-ssl \
   --with-dbm=db43 \

This gives me the following error log (shortened):

Using --with-dbm=db4 shows the same error.

Not using the instruction  --with-dbm=db43 leads to an error in the next 
line for --with-berkeley-db

Using --with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3 leads to
./runconf.httpd: line 30: --with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3: 
No such file or directory

Using --with-berkeley-db without parameters leads to
./runconf.httpd: line 30: --with-berkeley-db: command not found

Why doesn't it find Berkeley DB? What am I doing wrong here? I would be 
really grateful for your hints.
