BUG: Error Upgrading Apache2: Multiple APR errors then Apache2 .configure fails

Reported by: ebwebw macports@… Owned by: imajes@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: apr Cc:
Port: apache2


I recently ran a "port upgrade installed" that seems to have broken my Apache2 install. I tried to upgrade Apach2 but got a bunch of build errors while configuring various components, most notably apr and apr-utils ports of various versions, after which the .configure script of the Apache2 portf failed with the following error. I'm running Macports 1.32 on a 10.4.9 PPC Powerbook with gcc version 4.0.0 20041026 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 4061).

Error below:

It's been a long time since this ticket was filed so maybe it's been fixed since then. Please make sure you have the latest Mac OS X (currently 10.4.11 for Tiger) by running Software Update, make sure you have the latest Xcode (currently 2.5 for Tiger) by downloading it from the Apple Developer Connection if necessary, make sure you have the latest MacPorts by running "sudo port selfupdate", and try again with "sudo port clean --work apache2" followed by "sudo port install apache2" (or "sudo port upgrade apache2" if it's already installed). If you still have the error, please report back with your version of Mac OS X, Xcode and MacPorts.

Assigning ticket to maintainer of apache2.
