Subject [users@httpd] configure script creating unsolicited dependencies
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2009 12:05:49 GMT
I want an Apache with the standard modules plus mod_rewrite.

   ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache22w \
     --with-mpm=worker --enable-rewrite

However, I do get a lot of extra stuff. This is not what I want.

lobster:/usr/local/src/httpd-2.2.11# ldd httpd =>  (0xffffe000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7fb7000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f9d000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f67000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f5b000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7e60000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7e43000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7de8000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7dc8000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7da4000) => /lib/ (0xb7da1000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7d98000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7d6a000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7d58000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7d54000) => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ (0xb7c22000)

For instance, I haven't asked for mod_ldap or other LDAP stuff to be
enabled, so what's the point of linking against libldap_r?

Specifically, the dependency on libdb is a problem, as I'll load another
version of libdb later on via mod_perl.

The operating system is Linux Debian Etch, the Apache version is 2.2.11.
The system has quite some libraries installed, and it looks to me as if
configure thinks I want an Apache with all those features possible. Is
this the expected behaviour?

If so, how do I have to run configure to get what I want?

Or maybe I have overlooked something in here?
