Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to link pcre statically into Apache 2.4.9?
Date Tue, 27 May 2014 12:17:39 GMT
Yes thanks,
    
I missed the subtlety that you absolutely must only build a static PCRE
and use that when building Apache. The static build generates a pcre-config
that does this
    
    pcre-config --cflags
        -I/.../include -DPCRE_STATIC
                
and that -DPCRE_STATIC is all important.
                
Thanks again.
