Done. See

Well when I was building 1.0.2 it didn't work but it has taken so long to get
this building, 1.0.3 and now I see 1.0.4 have come out.

Which I've done now. It would appear configuring and building apr, apr-util and
neon separately then using

--with-apr=/usr/local/apr/bin/apr-config --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apr

works for me.

No. There is no automake or autoconf on this machine

See email in this thread from jean-frederic clere as it included some fixes to
configure. They helped me but it was not the final solution as the hang I
was seeing simply moved to the configure for neon.

I wasn't using 1.0.4. Originally it was 1.0.2 then after a week of fighting
that on and off 1.0.3 came out. I'm not sure I get this problem in 1.0.3 as by
then I had started configuring and building apr, apr-util and neon separately.

I'm now stuck with AIX 4.1 but only a few more platforms after that to go.
BTW, I've reported http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=29170 in
APR re adding -Wl,-brtl to compile lines during configure which does not work
with the AIX 4.1 native compiler.

Currently I have svn on:

o various linux
o sco unixware 7
o solaris 2.8 sparcv9
o AIX 5.1L
o HP-UX 11 parisc2
o Solaris 2.5 sparc
o Solaris 2.8 x86
o AIX 4.3
o sco unixware 2.1.3
o sco openserver
o HP-UX Itanium
o HP-UX 10.10 parisc1
o tru64 alpha
o freebsd
o sinix mips

and still have MAC OS X, QNX (various), Windows Services for UNIX (interix) and
OpenVMS (last because I think there is no chance - but if anyone knows better
please let me know).

Anything I can do to assist with 29169 or 29170 please let me know.

Thanks again for all your help.
