It work round this problem by adding a call to


from install-mod-shared so that the directory is created before
calling apxs2. I've attached a patch which only touch's
build/gen_base.py and does remove -a option from apxs2 Makefile.in as

To configure to night when I get back from work (I think activation is
a beter word to use than activate).
