I had to change the GCC flags. Still have some issues. The version of
Neon is not correct (need 0.29 and not 0.28.3), and it took me a while
to get zlib working. I had to build that manually and add the
--with-zlib=$HOME flag. Then, there was a complaint about apr and I
had to go in and hack the apr configuration file.
I hate trying to get this stuff to build. The configure utility is
impossible to debug and Make isn't any better. I've been building
software for over 20 years and I shiver every time I have to build
this stuff. Documentation is scanty and no comments in any of the
files or utilities.
