[pubcookie-users] Setting up on Mac OS X 10.5 and test server

I am using OS X 10.5 client and ran into a "make" problem today.
A similar issue was asked over a year ago on this list but no clear
solution was found (search for "[pubcookie-users] Problem compiling
Pubcookie 3.3.2c on Debian Etch x86", first posted on 2007/03/22).
However the two issues seem different even though they both generate the
My error on OS X 10.5 (stock Apache 2) with pubcookie 3.3.2 & 3.3.3:
/usr/share/httpd/build/special.mk:27: /usr/build/rules.mk: No such file
I am guessing this is the same problem you have. I finished the
installation by modifying "module/Makefile" twice. I have not got my
certificate yet so I can't test if this is really working. Maybe someone
can let me know before I continue with a faulty installation :p
I don't know enough about how this works but I was able to trace back to
this line in "configure"(~line 3810):
APACHE_PREFIX=`$APXS -q PREFIX`
When running "apxs -q PREFIX" in 10.5 it returns "/usr" which is what
caused the error since there is no such file at /usr/build/rules.mk but
instead at /usr/share/httpd/build/rules.mk.
So I manually modified "module/Makefile" (see below) after running
configure *AND* after running make.
**** change these 3 values to "/usr/share/httpd"
top_dir = /usr
top_srcdir = /usr
top_builddir = /usr
Again, I have not tested this yet and do not know if the installation
was successful. I do not know what the actual dir values should have
been or the cause of the "incorrect" apxs prefix output. I'll appreciate
if someone can let me know that this will or will not work. Thanks.
