Subject Re: How do I build
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2004 12:01:00 GMT
Why do I care if the lib is static or not?  Recompiling Apache sounds 
like a lot of work just because I want to compile mod_jk, and to be 
honest, this does not really seam to answer my questions.  Why would I 
even bother with the ant build and not just compile what is in the 
native2 directory?
