Apache 2 configure not recognizing options

Hello all.

I am trying to compile Apache 2 (again!) and the configure script keeps telling me it does not recognize the options. Everything I am including is in the --help list.

For example: --enable-so. First I will put in the LD flags, then configure with the --enable-so option.

Below is the output:

/downloads/httpd-2.2.9(root)>LDFLAGS="-R/lib -R/usr/lib -R/usr/local/lib -R/opt/mysql/mysql/lib" \
> ./configure --enable-so
checking for chosen layout... Apache
checking for working mkdir -p... yes
checking build system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10
checking host system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10
checking target system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10
Configuring Apache Portable Runtime library ...
checking for APR... reconfig
configuring package in srclib/apr now
configure: WARNING: Unrecognized options: --enable-so
Why is configure not recognizing my options? Am I not entering them correctly?

# 2  
From what I am reading on Google, version 2.2.9 has problems with the ./configure script. I tried running buildconf and that did not seem to resolve the problem.

I see that Apache has a 2.2.11 version. I'll give that a try and hopefully configure will not be as buggy.

Apache 2.2.11 compiled and installed without a problem. Woot!
