Hi Eric. Thanks for the response. I looked at both web sites and basically started all over. I downloaded the pcre packages and installed. Those, of course, complained about dependencies so, after many times downloading some extra dependencies, I finally got back to the point of compiling apache. After I use the ./configure command, I still get the error saying it can't find the pcre-config, even though it is pointed to on the command line. So, I'm still stuck at the same point I was last week. Any other ideas?

Have you looked at the wiki?  

My last AIX build on 2.4 used pcre and expat from
rather than the IBM toolbox. But there are probably ways to get all
different varieties to work.
