Cool. I have done some work on that static linking thing. I can have the patch
to you some time tomorrow (Sydney time), if you're interested. I can't promise
it looks nice, but at least it's a starting point... And, of course, I get
mod_apreq statically linked into Apache 2 - hurray!

I'm not sure if the fix for that NULL problem that I mentioned is going to be
included... Do you want me to have more look into the code to see where exactly
we need such a test and ultimately submit a patch?

Is the page done through Anakia or XSLT? I should be familiar with both. Where
do the pages live - I keep forgeting the URL's for the Apache sites themselves.
