whew... I've been playing with Apache 2.0 on AIX for several weeks straight now... almost learning enough about AIX shared objects/libraries to figure out why libtool does what it does and what needs to be done differently for Apache... luckily there are some good people at work to help out :)

I got 64-bit Apache 2.0 serving pages on AIX today but had to disable send_file() usage to do so. Something weird going on as I always get back EINVAL from send_file()... dunno yet... some nice chap in Austin is bound to help me out...

so many little details left... hit a compile failure with 64-bit compiler in anal mode... seems we're not including time.h in mod_mime_magic for the ctime() declaration... but guess what... we shouldn't be calling ctime() anyway in that place (I think that is request processing code) cause it ain't thread safe... a sane APR interface would be nice (probably already is one; I gotta check)... so I'm glad it didn't compile :) somebody put a little XXX there already (eons ago) but we forgot about it...

what else... more export file problems just now noticed because I don't use DSOs enough... differs between an AP_DEBUG build and !AP_DEBUG... gross...

must get sleep... must help clean the house... (nah!)
