Notes

gcc

  • configure tends to use cc by default and it has to be configured to use gcc. The Mac environment comes with gcc and the gcc pre-processor already installed, so before running configure, do this:
export CC=/usr/bin/gcc
export CPP=/usr/bin/cpp

Local APR

After the configuration and during the compilation I've got this:

/usr/share/apr-1/build-1/libtool --silent --mode=link /usr/bin/gcc           -o mod_expires.la -rpath /Users/ovidiu/runtime/httpd-2.2.26/modules -module -avoid-version  mod_expires.lo
/usr/share/apr-1/build-1/libtool: line 8962: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX10.10.xctoolchain/usr/bin/cc: No such file or directory

I worked around this problem by re-configuring and using:

--with-included-apr

at configuration stage.
