Hello Rich,

Thank you very much for the reply!

I looked for the link and it turns out it was an error on my part. The
post wasn't referring to robust shared mutexes. It was regarding process
shared mutexes

It says musl doesn't have process shared mutexes so one should set
apr_cv_process_shared_works=no. I take it that is correct?

Again, thank you for taking the time!

Kind regards,
