Thanks. I got mod_mono from CVS, but the compiling is turning out to not 
be so simple.

First, the INSTALL instructions say to ./configure, but there is no 
configure file in mod_mono/. (There is a non-executable configure.in, 
but if I try to make it executable and use it, it returns a syntax error.)

Okay, so I'll try it by hand. I enter
   apxs2 -c src/mod_mono.c
and find out that it can't find some header files it wants from the mono 

Okay, so I have to get mono from CVS too (I use the compiled binaries 
from http://www.debianplanet.org/mono, so I didn't have it already). Do 
that, enter
   apxs2 -I ~/mono -c src/mod_mono.c
Now it finds the header files it wants, but it gives a flood of errors, 
starting with:
   /home/ichbin/mono/mono/io-layer/types.h:19: error:
   syntax error before "guint32"
I look in that file, and the construction there is indeed strange (a 
struct inside a union), but I can't see anything wrong with it.

I'm stuck. Is this a mono bug, a gcc bug, or a me bug?
