Re: APR-UTIL package build

Yes, I believe that is possible, if I understand what you are saying.

I'm working on "exporting" it from apache right now as apache already has
to have them both any way. I could either build an apr and apr-util
package from the apache RPM spec file or if I could figure out how to
build APR-UTIL from the APR package then that would be another option.

I tried the second method already but no luck (I probably just haven't
figure it out yet). Since the first method almost builds what I want
anyway, I'm trying the first method right now.

Thanks for the clues.
