I vote pro including this package to the net release (mainly because
there is another proxyserver which works better for me like squid;)
The binary version seems to work ok, as usual (proxy not tested yet).
Some minor issues:
I think libhttpd.dll should be in /usr/bin like all the shared libs.
To load the shared plugins it isn't needed to include /usr/libexec in
# Cygwin 1.3.x layout
I request to change the path to the conf files to /etc/apache or
/etc/httpd, why another subdirectory?
A typo in the README:
tar xjvf apache_1.3.22-1-src.tar.bz2
configure --with-layour=Cygwin \
The Cygwin README with build instructions should also
be included in the source package (IMO).
Fix 1., 2., 3. and i'll start a build now to see if the
patched source builds `user-friendly' without tweaking:-)
