It seems that the "getting your feet wet" procedure for building mod
perl version 1 produces a static apache/mod_perl httpd. And static
linking seems to be the prefered method as it loads faster.
However, following the "getting you feet wet" procedure for mod_perl
version 2 does NOT produce a static httpd. And the procedure tells you
to insert a LoadModule command in your httpd.conf file in order to
(dynamically) load the mod_perl module.
The problem is that I can not seem to build a static mod_perl/httpd
for Apache 2 and mod_perl 2. How is this done?
I have hunted around in the documentation for options which relate to
static building, but all I can find is the mod_perl MP_USE_STATIC=1,
and when I use it the "make install" fails because it tries to copy
I am still following the procedure on the "getting you feet wet" page,
where you "configure", "make" and "make install" apache; then
"configure", "make" and "make install" mod_perl into the same
directory that apache had installed into. Do I need to follow a
different procedure to get a statically compiled mod_perl 2 ?
