...when you say "not working", do you mean "it fails to compile,
giving *this* error message"; or "it compiles but fails to configure,
giving *this* error message"; or "it compiles and configures, but when
I make *this* request I get *that* response but I want to get *this*
response instead"; or something else?

I suspect that people who are able to help, will find it easier to help
if they have a full clear question, possibly with sample code.
