Feature request #4756
Add compile-time option "qgis-server-only"
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed|

Actually compile qgis for use as a qgis-server require to install many libraries absolutely unuseful like the QTWEBKIT.
In some OS like redHat there is really difficult to retrieve some libraries, and if the libraries missing are libraries that are unusefult for qgis-server.
An option at compile-time like "qgis-server-only" will allow to use the qgis-server more easily in many OS.

I tested it.
Now it don't ask no more for the QTWEBKIT.
But it ask for the FastCGI library.
Unfortunately not all the server web can use it.
I'm using tomcat (not apache).
And it don't allow the use of FastCGI.
I know FastCGI is a library to speedup the execution.
In the standars web server.
But Tomcat is a special web-server that has inside a mechanism like that of the FastCGI.
Infact the difference between a CGI and a FastCGI is that the CGI startup on every request the environment where run the
executable. FastCGI make it persistent in memory speeding up so the startup of environmnet (is just started).
Tomcat work with a similar mechanism, also it don't use the FastCGI library.
So I guess should be better if the FastCGI was an optional parameter.
So even the webserver that cannot use the FastCGI could try to use the qgis-server.
