Arrow Compiling Apache 2 on Debian Etch


Hi, I am trying to compile Apache 2 on Debian Etch, but I keep getting the following error, even though I have all gcc, g++, cpp, and c++ packages installed.

Code:
APR Version: 1.2.7
checking for chosen layout... apr
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
Applying APR hints file rules for i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
  setting CPPFLAGS to "-DLINUX=2"
  adding "-D_REENTRANT" to CPPFLAGS
  adding "-D_GNU_SOURCE" to CPPFLAGS
(Default will be unix)
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
configure failed for srclib/apr
Any help appreciated

this means that, there something wrong with the time? do you have the correct time set on your pc? check the time of creation of /lib/cpp

why dont you do it the easy way
apt-get install apache2
that should install all dependencies automatically, and save you the headache.

That is how I have it now, but the thing is that I would like to compile it from source for performance improvements... it is for a web-based in-house order tracking system at our shop, and its based mostly on CGI/perl... also uses some mysql, which I intend to compile from source next, after installing apache. Also, I want to install everything in a custom directory, to help maintaining and version tracking easier.

Apache 2 compiles fine on ubuntu, but I only get this on Debian Etch..

The clock is set to the correct time... I guess Im not sure why that would matter, but is there something else I should check here?

Thanks again for help

In checking the time of creation for /lib/cpp, I also found that /lib/cpp links to /etc/alternatives/cpp

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2006-08-15 19:25 /lib/cpp -> /etc/alternatives/cpp
Would this have anything to do with it?

Thanks again

last time I had a sanity check error it was because of the time on my machine
I had changed the date to 16/8/05,while looking at the calendar and the file on the machine which gave sanity check error was compiled on 16/07/06.
thats the reason I told you to check that.

could you paste config.log here

I guess I am just not understanding the problem here, I am not sure if there is an specifif error in the config.log... I am probably overlooking something simple.

one thing I noticed here is the link to /lib/cpp should have been somewhere like /usr/bin/cpp.
what happens when you type in the command /lib/cpp?

When typing /lib/cpp, it just hangs there doing nothing until I press Ctrl-Z

appears to be in some sort of infinite loop... this is probably the problem, how could I correct this... there is not /bin/cpp... I have every packing installed containing the words g++, cpp, c++ or gcc from within synaptic, even the -dev, -dbg, -pic etc... I have all libstdc and libstdc++ packages installed, i have build-essential installed as well as all of the recommended packages. Im not sure what else to try.

Thanks again for your input

For the life of me, I cannot find out what this sanity check error means... Nothing is making any difference. Everything I try, same error.
