But the patch I sent (or some kind of working --prefix) is very usefull for any kind of packaging and non-root-compilation. Thus I still suggest the patch. ... > As far as I know, Debian already has a mod_python package that they > maintain under their CVS, FreeBSD has a mod_python port that is maintained > in the FreeBSD ports CVS.

But IMHO: In order to make sure that cvs-mod_python works under any OS the compilation and packaging for them should be supplied in the cvs/tar. You do use configure scripts for a reason, right? That's my opinion - and as it is TheRightOne you should have the same! ;) Roger and over, -- Mads Kiilerich Sys.Adm. Cand.Polyt. Stud.Bibel. Mads at Kiilerich.com Tel. +45 26 20 07 73 Fxvqrevx! Fiva!
