The Serf package contains a C-based HTTP client library built upon the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library. It multiplexes connections, running the read/write communication asynchronously. Memory copies and transformations are kept to a minimum to provide high performance operation.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.5 platform.

User Notes: http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/serf
Install Serf by running the following commands:
sed -i "/Append/s:RPATH=libdir,::" SConstruct && sed -i "/Default/s:lib_static,::" SConstruct && sed -i "/Alias/s:install_static,::" SConstruct && scons PREFIX=/usr
To test the results, issue: scons check.
Now, as the
scons PREFIX=/usr install
sed -i "...": The first command removes the runtime path from a shared library and the next two commands disable building and installing of the static library.
GSSAPI=/usr: Use this switch if you
have installed a GSSAPI library and you want serf to use it.
