Yes, I have not recompiled any of the packages that *depend* on apache
(httpd). I will leave that to other users at the moment. To work around
that at the moment just install the httpd with the "--nodeps" option (but
that will very likely "break" the packages that depend on it.

Unfortunately, RedHat hasn't yet updated to the post 2.0.40 series of
apache servers and there was a binary incompatable change in 2.0.41 which
means everything depending on apache (httpd) will have to be recompiled.

Well, I guess possibly, depending on what you are using it for and what
other packages you need. Believe me, it was a *LOT* harder (at least
for me) before the RPM packages were created (which was one major
reason I created them....I hate having to manually go through a long
drawn out compile process with lots of dependencies). The more packages
that depend on apache (httpd) then the harder it gets. I'm not using any of
the php stuff on my subversion servers at the moment so upgrading is very
easy for me (typically less than 15 minutes).

Of course over time it is getting easier and as soon as RedHat updates to
the post 2.0.41 series packages it will be lots easier for people using
packages that depend on apache (httpd).

Of course, the RPMS could always be made better and I'm slowly working to
make them better.

Patches welcome. :-)
