you guys can help me out a bit, assuming this is the right place to ask for this.

I fixed the problems using a later version of GCC (3.2.3) but now I'm stuck with a different
issue. The configuration get's a long way without any problems untill it stops with the following

checking whether to enable mod_access... shared (all)
checking whether to enable mod_auth... shared (all)
checking whether to enable mod_auth_anon... shared (all)
checking whether to enable mod_auth_dbm... shared (all)
checking whether to enable mod_auth_digest... checking dependencies
You need APR random support to use mod_auth_digest.
Look at APR configure options --with-egd and --with-devrandom.
checking whether to enable mod_auth_digest... configure: error: mod_auth_digest has been requested
but can not be built due to prerequisite failures

Isn't the APR stuff supposed to be included in the httpd source?
What can be done to fix this problem?

For the record: I'm trying to compile Apache 2.0.55.
