Problem loading shared object file into apache  2

Hello,

I am currently running apache2. I want to load a shared object file into apache, mod_auth_mfix. This module basically allows  Win XP clients to load files upto apache2 using Webdav: at the moment there is a bug in XP that asks them for the domain name and password in order to upload the files and the domain cannot be read so it has to be stripped off. The mod_auth_mfix  module come sfrom luluware. When I do a make everything is OK but when I do a install it only installs a  ".a" and a ".la" files in the modules directory and does not create the necessary ".so" file.

There is a makefile with it that you have to edit with the path of your apxs so I edit this file putting in the correct path

However, when I try to do a "make install" I get the following error ...

Warning!  dlname not found in /opt/apache2/modules/mod_auth_msfix.la.
Assuming installing a .so rather than a libtool archive.
chmod 755 /opt/apache2/modules/mod_auth_msfix.so
chmod: WARNING: can't access /opt/apache2/modules/mod_auth_msfix.so
apxs:Error: Command failed with rc=65536 .
make: *** [install] Error 1

Is this a libtool error? I'm stumped any suggestions would be so welcomed.

Bernie
