Subject [users@httpd] Short and easy flag to have configure compile default modules as shared objects?
Date Mon, 19 Jan 2009 20:21:19 GMT
Howdy Folks,

I was wondering if 'configure' had a short and sweet flag to tell it
to do the following:

* Compile the default modules, but compile them as shared objects
instead of staticly.

I see no short and easy way to do this.

I could use --enable-mods-shared, but I'd have to then list every
default module as the args to that flag.

I tried --enable-mods-shared _without_ arguments, but it had no effect.

I took a look at 'configure' and sure enough, that is how it is designed.

<configure with line numbers>
   8154   # Check whether --enable-mods-shared was given.
   8155 if test "${enable_mods_shared+set}" = set; then
   8156   enableval=$enable_mods_shared;
   8157     for i in $enableval; do
   8158       if test "$i" = "all" -o "$i" = "most"; then
   8159         module_selection=$i
   8160         module_default=shared
   8161       else
   8162         i=`echo $i | sed 's/-/_/g'`
   8163         eval "enable_$i=shared"
   8164       fi
   8165     done
   8167 fi
</configure with line numbers>

Is there some reason why the line 'module_default=shared' is not also
in the 'else' stanza?

I do not want to use the 'most' or 'all' arguments to the
--enable-mods-shared flag because that compiles more modules than the
default.  For example, the speling module will be compiled under

Ideally, what I'd like to do is issue the command:

./configure --enable-mods-shared

...and have all the default modules compiled as shared objects (except
http, of course).

I'm using the latest sources 2.2.11.

$ md5sum configure

Thanks, All.
