After failures with mod_cgi and mod_log_config, I've noticed that those 2
modules wouldn't link with libhttpd.a. The lib they wanted was libhttpd.dll. So
I made the build with:

./configure --enable-module=so --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE --enable-rule=EAPI
--enable-shared=max --enable-shared=proxy --with-perl=/usr/local/bin/perl
make -i
make -i install

and the modules with:

for f in *.lo; do /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -c -o `basename $f .lo`.dll $f
../../libhttpd.dll; done

Actually I've not used in production the last versions of Apache & co. and
cygwin. On my NT I have a "SERVER_SOFTWARE = Apache/1.3.12 (Cygwin) PHP/4.0.2
mod_ssl/2.6.6 OpenSSL/0.9.5a", with your 1.3.9 patch applied (ssl'n'php
included in libhttpd.dll). I didn't find any performance problem, although having
a poor hardware PDC configuration, with cygwin sshd and apache not running as
services, but launched from a tk console so they can work in background
without any problems, after finishing tk.

But on my w9x there's no other mean to pass over the keeping connection
alive until the time out expires, after running a cgi script (not a php). The
problem stands while static linking the httpd, too.
