Description Friedrich Haubensak 2016-07-06 12:32:30 UTC
when doing "./configure ... --with-nghttp2=/some/directory ...", 
configure, to find nghttp2's build paramaters, sets PKG_CONFIG_PATH to /some/directory/lib/pkgconfig, which is wrong for e.g. a 64bit linux system as this has it's .pc files in .../lib64/pkgconfig (and installs libraries to .../lib64).  in the end, the generated build files are missing the neccessary 

modules/http2/config2.m4 should be fixed so not to use unconditionally 

btw., same problem is in acinclude.m4 in the code for --with-ssl

Added a check for 64bit linux.

If /modules/http2/config2.m4 is replaced with the patch I attached, the bug will be fixed.

This is fixed in trunk with r1799341 and in 2.4.x with r1812393 which is included in 2.4.29 and up.
