Hmmm, I read it, and though it looks somewhat promising, I wonder if
that'll work... The issue is that when first patching the C file, and
then just trying a "make" it does nothing. When doing a "make clean",
it will get all sources freshly again (hence undoing the patches made
to the C file). From what I gather from the section you refer to, it
will simply use a different working directory and/or install
directory. However, wouldn't that try to simply install a newly build
entire Apache 2.2.4 version next to the existing one (be it in a
different directory, or not), with the difference that it is freshly
built out of a different working directory (but still using the same
fresh new sources)?
For obvious reasons, I'm somewhat apprehensive about trying this on
my live server (though I could possibly (ab)use my fallback server
for it), and was kind of hoping there would be an easy way to just
compile the mod_autoindex module, using the patched source...
It appears I may have to fiddle around somewhat more with this,
unless someone knows of a good way to achieve just that...?
