Last time I checked AxKit had problems compiling under anything later than RH7 because they didn't have access to a system running FC. I did actually get it working once, but the Perl dependencies are the usual nightmare. Cocoon is heavily supported, and seems to work out of the box. You will, however, need some serious memory and CPU for Cocoon. > p.s. I'll be putting this question to ApacheCon in Dublin later this > month, I'll see what they say.
