3.2. Building mod_perl (make)

After completing the configuration, it's time to build the server by simply calling:

panic% make

The make program first compiles the source files and creates a mod_perl library file. Then, depending on your configuration, this library is either linked with httpd (statically) or not linked at all, allowing you to dynamically load it at runtime.

You should avoid putting the mod_perl source directory inside the Apache source directory, as this confuses the build process. The best choice is to put both source directories under the same parent directory.
