Thanks Owen,

The reason I am asking is that I have always compiled mod_ssl static and I
am now getting feedback from a customer who indicates that the problems he
is having related to SSLVerifyClient renegotiation are due to mod_ssl not
being compiled static. He has a static compiled mod_ssl and indicates that
this operation works fine but in the shared mod_ssl is does not.

Somehow I can't see how this operational issue is related.

Thanks again...
