Description Boban 2006-11-23 19:12:58 EST
Description of problem:

Install httpd-devel package, create a sample module with usr/sbin/apxs -g -n foo
and then try to install that module. It gives out error that it cannot find
/etc/httpd/build/instdso.sh. Problem is in line 32 in modules.mk which reads:

$(top_srcdir)/build/instdso.sh SH_LIBTOOL='$(SH_LIBTOOL)' $$i

instead of 

$(top_builddir)/build/instdso.sh SH_LIBTOOL='$(SH_LIBTOOL)' $$i

I changed the line to latter and now it works.

FC6, httpd-devel-2.2.3-5

I have the same problem. A custom Apache module compiles and installs only if
change Makefile (my was generated in FC4 some time ago):

Index: Makefile
--- Makefile    (revision 838)
+++ Makefile    (working copy)
@@ -4,8 +4,8 @@

 include /usr/lib/httpd/build/special.mk


I don't know the right way to fix it. Shall it be special.mk or apxs which
generated Makefile with wrong top_srcdir value.
Comment 2 Boban 2006-12-08 05:05:21 EST
For me it helped to change that one line in special.mk. Also, another module
that I was trying to compile was giving out same error, and after changing
special.mk it all works as a charm

Btw, is anybody from redhat/fedora maintainers even reading this?
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2006-12-08 05:33:56 EST
Yes ;) This is fixed in the Raw Hide branch as of a yesterday - thanks for the
report.   I'll leave this open to remember to fix it in a future FC6 httpd update.

The fix used is to:

sed -i '/instdso/s,top_srcdir,top_builddir,' /usr/lib/httpd/build/special.mk
