Alright. So I decided to upgrade to Apache 2.2.0 (1.3.3 was on my system be default o_O). Downloaded the sources and had at it. Everything seemed to be going fine, until when I ran 'checkinstall', it failed. I ran 'make install' and it complained that the lib files had
to be in /usr/lib, and the prefix was currently /usr/local/apache2. Sooooo, I added --libdir=/usr/lib into my configure path, and I figured I'd be on my way.
For some reason, now configure won't finish! It was working fine before (I even removed --libdir and put everything back to how I did it the first time, but nothing worked) and I hadn't changed anything on my system, so I was very confused as to what was going on. Here's what happens now whenever I try and do ./configure:
checking for chosen layout... Apache
checking for working mkdir -p... yes
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configuring Apache Portable Runtime library ...
checking for APR... yes
setting CC to "gcc"
setting CPP to "gcc -E"
setting CFLAGS to " -g -O2 -pthread"
setting CPPFLAGS to " -DLINUX=2 -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE"
setting LDFLAGS to " "
Configuring Apache Portable Runtime Utility library...
checking for APR-util... reconfig
configure: error: Cannot use an external APR with the bundled APR-util
I also tried unpacking the archive again, and starting with a fresh source, but that didn't work either.
