Subject Does mp2 support httpd-2.2.0?
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2006 11:45:05 GMT
I've been trying to build mod_perl-2.0.2 with httpd-2.2.0 on Win32 and 
found that it doesn't work very smoothly.

First of all, "perl --with-apache2=C:/apache2" had trouble 
finding the Apache.exe because it is now called httpd.exe; I later found 
that there is a --with-apache-prog argument to help out there.

Then "perl Makefile.PL MP_AP_PREFIX=C:/apache2" threw a wobbly 
complaining that it couldn't find libapr.lib and libaprutil.lib.  These 
are now called libapr-1.lib and libaprutil-1.lib; copying them (and 
their DLL's) to the names expected by Makefile.PL sorted that out, but 
it isn't ideal.

After that it all built OK, but "nmake test" complains:

mod_perl 2 was built against Apache sources, we don't know where 
httpd/apxs executables are, therefore skipping the test suite execution 
at C:\Temp\mod_perl-2.0.2\Apache-Test\lib/Apache/ line 380.

I'm not sure how to get around that one.

Is it supposed to work with httpd-2.2.0 yet or not?

The README only mentions 2.0.55, but then again, it also describes 
itself as "2.0-tobe", so this is possibly out-of-date.  (The STATUS file 
is also out-of-date.)
