I thought that binaries for Win32 and Linux are the first ones to emerge. I also thought that
being on Digital UNIX was a handicap... I'm sorry to hear that you guys are having problems.
BTW, mod_webapp is "Linux-ized" to the max, which drove me crazy a couple of times. But I'm
not seeing many "Apache stuff" in mod_webapp compile. There is the APR, but that's all.

I will still give them some credit (maybe because I have a working mod_webapp :-)). I can
only hope that they will get things right, ASAP.

Yes, you're right. But I have hope. If they made it work for mod_jk (although, NOT for Digital
UNIX, dunno why), they should be able to make it for mod_webapp.
