I know you're busy, but would it be possible to
include the Apache Portable Runtime Libraries so that
the configure script adheres to true portability?

Specifically, the options --enable-layout=LAYOUT and
--with-most would really improve installation and up
and running lxr without so much manual editing of the
produced configuration files.

This would help tremendously in getting more
developers on SourceForge to quickly implement lxr for
their sources.

Thanks,

    Hi,

    This sounds like a good thing, but I'm not really familiar
    with the APR.

    Can you give me more info on what this would actually do for
    lxr configuration & setup? A patch would be even better... :-)

    Cheers,

    Malcolm

    I will have to look it over and see what I can come up with.
    What it would do is make it easier to put things where they
    are needed, which means to say, that with one file,
    something like layout.lxr, the tree structure for the entire
    lxr can be defined by the user according to where he wants
    it. srcdir, libdir, and others. It allows the developer to
    free himself from having to hardwire or hard define where
    each part, such as the cgi scripts, have to go.

    Let me make a better case for it in a few days and see what
    I come up with.
