Subject Re: How do I build
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2004 13:53:17 GMT
My system came with apache installed, so I don't think I have an apache 
directory, but I do have /etc/httpd/lib which points to /usr/lib. This 
directory does not have the files you indicated.

Why would anyone have static libraries if they are so limiting?  What 
advantage do they have, Faster loads?  If I don't have these lib files, 
is my only option to remove apache and recompile it?
