Subject Re: Regarding Serf install using scons failing
Date Sat, 12 Dec 2015 18:20:19 GMT

the compile error you're seeing is in a code file in serf's test
suite, not in the actual serf library.

The easiest way for you to get going, is to skip building the test
suite. Just running 'scons', and then 'scons install' should do that,
just skip the 'scons check' step.

The alternative is to fix your serf 1.3.8 copy. For that you need to
get a serf 1.3.8 working copy first:
$ svn co serf1.3.8

In the new working copy, you can now merge the change that fixes this
problem from the serf repo.
$ svn merge -c 1700013 .

Hope this helps!

Good question. The release seems to be stuck for a while, so no promises.

Think I've answered these questions above.
