I got mod_waklog to work on apache 2.2 at least.

I've found a lot of info in this posting:

Stephen Quinney's patches are available here:

Aaron Knister's patches here:

I downloaded mod_waklog from git, and applied the patches in this order:
patch -p1 < ../patches_aaron_knister/fix_build_scripts.patch
patch -p1 < ../patches_aaron_knister/have_stropts_h.patch
patch -p1 < ../patches_aaron_knister/gnu_source.patch

patch -p1 < ../patches_stephen_quinney/modwaklog-weakcrypto.patch
patch -p1 < ../patches_stephen_quinney/modwaklog-libs.patch

As I said, mod_waklog seems to work perfectly. However, I haven't got 
filedrawers to work yet. It does not seem to work with PHP 5.4.11 and 
Smarty 3.1.13.

I've read that it should work with PHP 5.x, but apparently not with 5.4, 
though I think I managed to fix that. (by loading some module statically 
instead of using "dl" - dynamically loaded modules, which is deprecated 
in 5.4).

Smarty 3.1.13 seems to be more difficult, I just get strange error messages.

I've found a note somewhere that it does not work with Smarty 2.x, and 
that version 1.x works. Maybe version 3.x has the same problem, and we 
need to downgrade to version 1.x.

I saw a thread about mod_waklog a few months ago, but what about filedrawers?
