 Ok, I think we're at crossed wires here. I downloaded the binary of 1.3.1 -
 the latest available in binaries - and the docs (INSTALL) told me to run
 ./configure -prefix etc. Because I'd downloaded the binary release I assumed
 this procedure was just to compile some small component of Apache and not
 the entire product which I assumed was already compiled. So the confusion
 seems to be that you've distributed the normal source releases in your
 'binaries' directory.
 So are you saying that if I download 1.3.4 'source release' then all I have
 to do is run ./configure -prefix etc?
 Also, do you happen to know if AIX4.3 is supposed to work or would I be just
 wasting my time with that.
