Subject MP and 2.4 Compilation Woes
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 15:39:25 GMT
Hi All,

So picking back up on the thread from the httpd list, I am interested in 
helping with mod_perl.  And I've written some patches for AuthenDBI and 
can work on those again as well.

However, at the moment I can't compile 2.4 and the make source_scan 
stuff is not something I even understand nor can I find much documented 
about it.

I've worked through Jan's patches downloaded 9/25 and the info on looked promising.

And even though I'm also using my own custom built perl 5.14 instead of 
the RH/CentOS builds I've tried so far, I've had no luck.

Following Jan's advice, I had to add this to

+     'APACHE_HTTP_VHOST_H', #c-scan chokes on http_host.h
+     'H_PERL', #""

That got me this far...

Overall, I think the concept that things should be forked to a new 2.4 
mod_perl is best because if it's backwards compatibility that's holding 
things back, I'd rather lose that.  I'm currently building on a devel 
box running on CentOS 6.2.
