Installing mod_dav_svn: apxs:Error: Config file /etc/apache2/httpd2-prefork.conf not found.

I am trying to install mod-dav-svn for the first time, and am getting this error message (see the full output at the end of this message).

/etc/apache2/httpd2-prefork.conf would indeed not be found, because it is not there. Should it be? httpd.conf and various other .conf files are in that directory.

I have installed Apache 2.0.47* from the SuSE-9.0 binary RPM, and it is working, and when I installed the "subversion-server" RPM (mod_dav_svn 0.27) I got that working, too, but now I have uninstalled mod_dav_svn 0.27 and am installing the latest build.

If I ignore the "apxs" error and continue, the Apache starts up OK but when I try "svn ls http://localhost/repos/myrepos", mod_dav_svn segfaults:

  Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

* Yes, I know we require Apache 2.0.48 now, and I am currently investigating building it from source. I have got as far as wondering what --prefix or set of prefixes to supply to "./configure". One of the many patches in the SuSE Apache-2.0.47 RPM is a patch to config.layout, which I suppose will be a good starting point.

I can't even build 2.0.47 from its source RPM yet, though: "rpmbuild -bc SPECS/apache2.spec" fails with:
  checking for ldap_init in -lldap... no
  configure: error: could not find an LDAP library
  configure failed for srclib/apr-util
even though /usr/lib/libldap.so.2 exists:
> ls /usr/lib/libldap.*
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root 18 2003-11-13 11:54 /usr/lib/libldap.so.2 -> libldap.so.2.0.122
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root 237971 2003-09-23 22:52 /usr/lib/libldap.so.2.0.122

I spent all weekend getting this far. I was stumped for about an hour when the home page of mod_dav offered a version for Apache 1.3, but nothing for Apache 2. Perhaps, Greg, you could add a note there to the effect of "mod_dav for Apache 2 is included in the Apache 2 distribution".

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
  - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
    during execution
  - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
    during linking
  - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
  - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.
