I'll talk to Guenter and see if this is possible.

We'll get the ball rolling on that one.

Keep in mind that when compiling for netware, it is done from a windows
workstation using Metrowerks codewarrior and gmake. There is no
./configure to run to update the makefiles with. There may be no other
way, though we are definitely open to options if you can think of
something. The current way of building apache2 for netware has a few
manual interventions required which I know we would love to find a way
around.

I'll also pass this info on to Guenter.
