 Are you saying you didn't just follow the instructions, but you started
 trying to make the regex library seperately?  That is the sort of thing
 that you really need to mention.  I can't magically know what you are
 doing.  If you have to do that before the problem occurs, you need to say
 Guesses at what causes the problem is are fine, but first I need to know
 what the exact problem is.

 You lost me.  What is this with?  The regex library distributed with
 Apache, or are you going on trying to use the original regex library?  A
 "config error" where?

 What is "it"?  Again, we love to fix bugs but we can not do so based on a
 description of them unless you provide an exact fix; we need the actual
 output from the actual attempt.
 Please unpack a fresh Apache distribution and send me a log of everything
 you do.  First try, just unpack it, run Configure and type make in the src
