For the first time in my recent memory, the httpd development branch would not compile! It turned out to be some old functions were not exported properly, and this caused undefined symbols on some platforms. Is a broken build a sign of progress for a project that has been idle? Is this the starting of a new life?

On the httpd frontpage there is now a link to the 2.1/2.2 Documentation. The next step is get a 2.1-alpha release on there. Hopefully that will get done this week, since PCRE 5.0 has been merged in.

I also knocked off an old bug in APR where it was trying to do runtime detection of sendfile support on FreeBSD. r106850
