Subject Re: [users@httpd] Re: Building Apache for Windows
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2012 02:59:11 GMT
Hi,

I haven't been following this thread, but I just got done building 2.4.3 on Centos, so I know
that 2.4.3 is different even on Centos :)..

After you unpacked the APR and APR-UTIL, did you:

- Copy/move the apr and apr-util directories under the srcfile directory that's under the
original 2.4.3 exploded directory?

- If you did copy/move the apr and apr-util directories did you include the --with-included-apr
(or --with-apr-included, I don't remember :))?

On my Centos 6 machine, I also had to install the PCRE-devel packages (on Centos, "yum install
pcre-devel").
