I've been compiling apache for a while now, and I always start with the same
configure line viz.
configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-module=most -enable-shared=max
I recently had a problem when I compiled 1.3.31 such that when it tried to run
apache, I got an error about os_is_path_absolute not being defined. A
little investigation revealed that with 1.3.29 after configuring as above, I
get a config.status like this
## config.status -- APACI auto-generated configuration restore script
## Use this shell script to re-run the APACI configure script for
## restoring your configuration. Additional parameters can be supplied.
but under 1.3.31 the line with --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE was missing. Now
this is clearly trivial to fix by simply adding --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE to
the configure command line, but it took me a little while to discover that
this was the problem and this change is not mentioned in the CHANGES file. Do
any of you know what happened, and why?
