Subject Re: [users@httpd] Compiling/Installing httpd 2.4.2 on AIX 6.1 with gcc/g++
Date Thu, 14 Jun 2012 15:52:24 GMT
Now I need to see if I actually put everything needed in ./build/aix/README
for httpd.

Starting point for me is: use neither /usr(/local) nor /opt/freeware (as I
am trying to be independent of "old" RPM's). A secondary goal is that the
installp packages built are suitable for installation in WPAR (hosting)
environments.

Next - I started with a clean installation (AIX 5.3 TL7 first, working
mainly with AIX 6.1 now) and "added" things as needed.

For zlib - what is needed is to copy zlib.h, and I think there is another
zlib related include file as well. -- copy to /usr/include, or /opt/include

For apr and apr-util I added build/aix/* files - I'll send copies if you
like. An independent tester who finds them sucessful may help get them
accepted to apr and apr-util trunks.

For the other packages that are needed - I wrote a buildaix package that
you can download via
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mkinstallp/files/buildaix-1.0.0/

If you add /opt/bin to your PATH the command /opt/bin/buildaix will run the
./configure command with some defaults - basically - prefix is /opt,
mandir=/usr/share/man, and confdir is /etc (and another one is /var, I
forget it's name atm).

I choose /opt as, imho, a better generic prefix for AIX - where /usr/local
just seems to create problems. (Idea: a symbolic link of /usr/local -> /opt
might fix a lot of things that break with "./configure" commands that only
look at /usr and /usr/local by default - but this is an aside".

Summary: drop /usr/local as prefix, stop using old RPM (or any RPM if
possible) - instead

download and build fresh using buildaix -- /opt, /etc, /var and
/usr/share/man as default destinations

For httpd: customized version of build/aix/* for apr-util in any case
(buildaix could be used for apr, but I have a seperate set of files for
that package as well)

So, e.g., coreutils I built and installed using buildaix, same for pcre and
any other required external package.

Thus, with php, I started with buildaix.

libxml2 was missing so the basic step was:
root@x104:[/data/prj/libxml2-2.7.7]buildaix
....
installp -d . aixtools.libxml2.rte
....
aixtools.libxml2.rte        2.7.7.0         USR         APPLY
SUCCESS

Added /opt to list of directories to search in configure to look for
xml2-config
LINE 21865

And configure completes.

I also got an Syntax errors with embedded sqlite so I compiled an external
version. However, php continues to try to compile that.

Maybe you can help me beyond this point:

michael@x054:[/data/prj/php-5.3.13]cat php_configure.ksh
#!/usr/bin/ksh

set -x

./configure \
        --prefix=/opt \
        --sysconfdir=/etc \
        --mandir=/usr/share/man \
        --with-libdir=/opt/lib \
        --with-sqlite3=/opt \
                > build/aix/configure.out

Now that configure has finished (there is a makefile) I can use buildaix
again (it skips the ./configure step if it sees a Makefile)

root@x104:[/data/prj/php-5.3.13]buildaix
NAME: php
VERSION.RELEASE: 5.3.13.0
/usr/bin/buildaix: using existing Makefile
/usr/bin/buildaix: run make distclean to get a standard AIX configure

Stop.

I hope this is not too lengthy - but I am anxious/curious about what I am
doing wrong - that make continues to try to compile the embedded sqlite
when it has an external one.
