Hi,

I'm trying to install Apache web server on Mac OSX 10.6.8. On my first attempt with ./configure, I was informed that my apr version was too old. So I downloaded apr and apr-util, and as instructed by the Apache INSTALL doc, I upacked those files and moved their directories to httpd-2.4.3/srclib/apr and httpd-2.4.3/srclib/apr-util:


Code:
~/Downloads/httpd-2.4.3/srclib$ ls
Makefile	Makefile.in	apr		apr-util
Then the Apache INSTALL doc said to run configure like this:

Code:
~/Downloads/httpd-2.4.3 $ ./configure --with-included-apr
But I got the error:

Code:
configure: error: pcre-config for libpcre not found. PCRE is required and available from http://pcre.org/
So I looked at the Apache installation docs here:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/install.html

which say:

REQUIREMENTS
....
....
Perl-Compatible Regular Expressions Library (PCRE)
This library is required but not longer bundled with httpd. Download the source code from http://www.pcre.org, or install a Port or Package. If your build system can't find the pcre-config script installed by the PCRE build, point to it using the --with-pcre parameter. On some platforms, you may have to install the corresponding -dev package to allow httpd to build against your installed copy of PCRE.
So I downloaded pcre and installed pcre with ./configure, make, make install, which seemed to install pcre correctly. But when I tried to run ./configure for Apache, and Apache couldn't find pcre. So next I tried:

Code:
~/Downloads/httpd-2.4.3$ ./configure --with-included-apr --with-pcre=../pcre-8.32/pcre-config
and this time ./configure seemed to end normally.

On to make:

Code:
~/Downloads/httpd-2.4.3$  make
But make ends with pcre errors:
Code:

Any ideas what went wrong or what I should try next? The Apache install web page says:
On some platforms, you may have to install the corresponding -dev package to allow httpd to build against your installed copy of PCRE.
But I can't find any information on where "the corresponding -dev package" can be downloaded from.

Thanks.
