Forgive the expression, but bullshit. :)

The mod_jk compilation *is* trivial and since they don't list on the website
what version of Apache or Linux the binary is compiled for, it's pretty much
useless. I'd say the number one problem post I have seen since joining this
list relates to the fact that the binary doesn't work on most people's
systems. If you give somebody with relatively little experience a binary
that's supposed to work and it doesn't, it only confuses the matter that
much more.

By the way, I'd be interested in hearing what your config is, since it
worked for you.

Thanks,
