Subject [users@httpd] Re: Apache 2.2.10 - apxs - cross-compiling modules failing
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2008 08:17:38 GMT
It's been a week since I posted this, and (possibly not surprisingly)
I've had no replies.

Is it because I've supplied insufficient detail, I'm asking in the
wrong place, or because the apache/httpd/apxs build simply isn't
designed to be cross-compiled.
