If you get back:


it usually means that your Apache was compiled with Sun C compiler and not
with gcc. This means that the version of libtool embedded within Apache
installation is also configured for Sun C compiler and not gcc. The Sun C
compiler setup is incompatible because the options to each compiler are
different for building shared objects and libraries.

Your options are to rebuild Apache using gcc instead of Sun C compiler, or
make a copy of various bits of Apache build scripts and libtool and change
them so they will work with gcc instead. I have done the latter before and
it is a bit of a fiddle, so rebuilding Apache with gcc is prefered option.

If you really want to try the second approach of hacking Apache build
scripts and libtool I can dig up my stuff on that, but will not have time until
tomorrow to do that.

You were able to build mod_perl because it probably ignores libtool and
does compiling of code files itself.
