As I mentioned in this chapter’s introduction,
AxKit’s core consists largely of code that glues
other things together. In practice, this means that most errors
encountered while installing AxKit are due to external dependencies
that are missing, broken, out of date, or invisible to
AxKit’s Makefile. Including a complete list of
various errors that may be encountered among AxKit’s
many external dependencies is not realistic here. It would likely be
outdated before this book is on the shelves. In general, though, you
can use a number of compile-time options when building AxKit. They
will help you diagnose (and in many cases, fix) the cause of the
recognizes the following options:
This option causes the Makefile to produce copious amounts of information about each step of the build process. Although wading through the sheer amount of data this option produces can be tedious, you can diagnose most installation problems (missing or unseen libraries, etc.) by setting this flag.
This option turns off AxKit’s apache configuration directives, which means you must set these via Apache’s
PerlSetVardirectives instead. Use this option only in extreme cases in which AxKit’s custom configuration directives conflict with those of another Apache extension module. (These cases are very rare, but they do happen.)
EXPAT_OPTS=" . . ."
This option is relevant only if you do not have the Expat XML parser installed and ...
