Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2 configuration "present but cannot be compiled" errors
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 12:57:55 GMT

I'm trying to compile Apache 2 because I'm in a situation where I can't use a pre-compiled
release. Unfortunately I've got no experience with compiling software at all so I'm hoping
you guys can help me out a bit, assuming this is the right place to ask for this.
I'm running Solaris 8 (UltraSparc 5) and to make thing even worse...this is basically the
first time I ever touched a Solrais system :-D

When running the configuration (configure --prefix=/work/training/dg432/servsoft/apache2 --enable-mods-shared=all)
I get presented with a series of errors all in the lines of:

checking dlfcn.h usability... no
checking dlfcn.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: dlfcn.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: dlfcn.h:     check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: dlfcn.h: see the Autoconf documentation
configure: WARNING: dlfcn.h:     section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled"
configure: WARNING: dlfcn.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
configure: WARNING: dlfcn.h: in the future, the compiler will take precedence
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------------ ##
configure: WARNING:     ## Report this to the AC_PACKAGE_NAME lists.  ##
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------------ ##
checking for dlfcn.h... yes

This is happening for the following files:
- dlfcn.h
- fcntl.h
- iconv.h
- sys/socket.h
- pwd.h
- grp.h
- sys/processor.h
- sys/sem.h

Can these errors be considered Apache bugs?

I've looked in the Autoconf documentation but for me it's not making much sence and I don't
realy know how I should continue to fix these issues. I hope you guys can get me started a

The error also states "Report this to the AC_PACKAGE_NAME lists". Does this mean I have to
change a list in some Apache source file or are they talking about a mailing list e.g.?

Sorry for my ignorance ;-)
