Subject [users@httpd] 64 Bit Apache httpd on Solaris
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2011 04:00:37 GMT
The Goal
A 64bit httpd executable on Solaris 5.10,  (independent of the "out of the 
box Solaris Apache server).

(isainfo ?v
        64-bit sparcv9 applications
                fmaf vis2 vis popc
        32-bit sparc applications
                fmaf vis2 vis popc v8plus div32 mul32 )

Current Postion
A 32bit httpd executable on Solaris 5.10.  -->
        /usr/local/apache2/bin > file httpd
        httpd:          ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC Version 1, 
dynamically linked, not stripped

Steps Taken
1)      Download  httpd-2.2.17.tar.gz and copy to Solaris server.  (
        Nothing I could find at the download site about a 32bit/64bit 
download - so I assume this is 
        determined at configuration/compilation time and there's just the 
one download for both setups.

2)      Follow instructions in httpd-2.2.17\INSTALL document.  Install 
into /usr/local/apache2 
        Nothing in the instructions matching search strings "64", "32" or 
        Check  -- same 
        Run httpd-2.2.17 > ./configure --help  ...  no sign of anything in 
the help options about configure 32 or 64 bit. 

3)      Search website - some instruction about Win64 but 
nothing useful for Solaris.
        Google   -  used key words/phrases such as  "compiling 64 bit 
solaris", "Apache 64 bit Solaris",  "Apache 64bit CFLAGS"
        "CFLAGS syntax"

        I found a few reasonable matches, but at best the sites either 
give me a better general understanding
        of this stuff, or they show some compile options that result in 
errors, (not much use).

Where to go from here
Obviously this stuff is not my primary area of expertise, but my hunch is 
that this "problem" might have a fairly simple solution - perhaps
a compiler option or something, but be stuffed if I can find it. If 
someone would be kind enough to help me along a bit with this it would be 
greatly appreciated.

Cheers All
Kevin F.
