Subject Re: httpd24 branch

I think I've committed all my patches [1] to httpd24 branch. It builds 
OK for me and I think it's now time for more people to build it and 
report your problems with this branch.

To compile it, I just checkout the httpd24 and run:

/usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL MP_APXS=/usr/bin/apxs 


If you want to run tests, you have to at first create ./t/run directory 
(to create this automatically, I would have to patch Apache-Test which I 
can't since it's separate component and lives outside my httpd24 branch 
if I'm right)

Then you can just run 'make test'.

The only failing test is t/directive/perlloadmodule3.t. I don't know 
perl enough to parse that code which merges configurations in this test yet.

If the build ends up with error message that it can't link against 
-laprutil-1, we will have to fix workaroud (and little hack) I've done 
in commit 1448043 [2].
