Fun   Python   django  

I'm deploying a django project using mod_python... now, usually I will just use my package management tools to install a binary version, but this time I need to build it from source.

As I get ready to go through the whole configure/make/make install process, I peruse the output of configure just to make sure everything is ok...

checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking for ar... ar
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for main in -lm... yes
checking for an ANSI C-conforming const... yes
checking your blood pressure... a bit high, but we can proceed
configure: checking whether apxs is available...
checking for --with-apxs... /usr/sbin/apxs executable, good
checking Apache version... 2.0.52
checking for Apache libexec directory... /usr/lib/httpd/modules
checking for Apache include directory... -I/usr/include/httpd
checking for --with-python... /usr/local/bin/python2.6
checking Python version... 2.6
checking Python install prefix... /usr/local
checking checking where python libraries are installed... /usr/local/lib/python2.6
checking for Py_NewInterpreter in -lpython2.6... yes
checking what libraries Python was linked with... -lpython2.6 -lpthread -ldl -lutil -lm
checking linker flags used to link Python...
checking where Python include files are... -I/usr/local/include/python2.6
checking for --with-python-src... /home/bkmontgomery/Python-2.6.1/src
checking for --with-mutex-dir... no
Using MUTEX_DIR /tmp
checking for --with-max-locks... 32
Using 32 MAX_LOCKS.
checking for --with-flex... /usr/bin/flex
found /usr/bin/flex, we'll use this. Use --with-flex to specify another.
checking flex version... configure: WARNING: Flex version 2.5.4 found.
Version 2.5.31 or greater is required. You can generally ignore this
warning unless you need to regenerate psp_parser.c from psp_parse.l.
If you do need regenerate psp_parser.c, use --with-flex to specify the
location of the correct flex version. See the README for more information.
