For whatever reason I wanted (and also would have a certain need) to build
to work with Apache 2.4 on Windows. ;-)
I've tried building 2.0.9-dev (master r1624218) with XAMPP 1.8.3 's (httpd
2.4.10) with several Strawberry Perl (portable) version and always fail
with the same errors. maybe I'm just doing it wrong but I haven't yet
figured out where to go from here. apxs doesn't seem to be part of XAMPP
but it seems to recognize the httpd folder.
Below is the output (Straberry Perl 5.16 32-bit)
no conflicting prior mod_perl version found - good.
Next we need to know where the 'apxs' script is located. This script
provides a lot of information about the Apache installation, and makes
it easier to find things on your system. Normally it's located in the
same directory as the 'httpd' executable.
If you don't yet have Apache installed you can build Apache against
the Apache source code, but you won't be able to run the test suite (a
very important step). Therefore you may want to install Apache before
Please provide a full path to 'apxs' executable
(press Enter if you don't have it installed):
Configure mod_perl with c:\xampp\apache? [y]
