Configuring Apache

I have Ubuntu Hardy Heron installed on my Lenovo Z60m. I wanted to try installing apache 2.2.9 without using the package manager apt-get with options

./configure --enable-modules=all --enable-mods-shared=all --enable-mem-cache --enable-disk-cache --enable-example --enable-so

But it failed with

configure: WARNING: Unrecognized options

This remained true for any configuration option except --help.

If you find yourself in this situation:
1. Ensure build-essentials is installed
2. Ensure gcc and its libraries are installed
3. go to the /untarred/apache/httpd directory. run './buildconf'

Hope this helps!
