problem building apache 1.3.9 with frontpage module

I found the src for the frontpage extensions module
at microsoft - the build step complains about 2 things
in the module. One is a struct entry and another is
some variable. I commented both of those out
and then got this. I can't remember what the
the names of the items I commented out were, but
it seems that this frontpage module was built in
an apache environment old enough that those API's
and global symbols are not defined any longer.  Does
anyone know where to get the source for a workable
module? Note that I _don't_ want a precompiled
daemon. I found that with the fp2000 stuff and it
is at 1.3.3, I think, and it doesn't include some of the
other modules that I usually build in. Any clues?

The answer to this question is very simple to solve.  The module from microsoft sites does not work with 1.3.9 you must use this module to use it.
ftp://ftp.var.net/pub/apache/mod_frontpage/

there you will find the correct module to use.

the configure steps works (and includes the fp module), but
the make step says:

Makefile:107: warning: overriding commands for target `clean'
Makefile:83: warning: ignoring old commands for target `clean'
gmake: *** No rule to make target `libfrontpage.so', needed by `shlib'.  Stop.

What now?

I found my problem - I was specifying a .a instead of a .o
in the configure line. It works great. Thanks for your help!
