configure --enable-modules=all doesn't

           Summary: configure --enable-modules=all doesn't
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.43
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Build
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: karl@freefriends.org


Apache 2.0.43, red hat 8.0, (gnu/linux-i386 2.4.18-14smp).

After unpacking the 2.0.43 distribution tarball, I did
  configure --enable-modules=all --with-layout=Apache

and was surprised that this did not actually enable all (at least
non-experimental) modules.  Same results with --enable-mods-shared=all.

I can see that it's desirable not to enable absolutely all modules; for
instance, choosing only one of cgi or cgid according to the mpm, only
including isapi under windows, suexec has potential security issues if
misconfigured, etc.

The modules I was surprised to find lacking from `all' were
deflate, cache, ext_filter, proxy, ssl, usertrack.

I looked at the documentation, searched google and the mailing list,
poked a bit at the source, emailed the users mailing list, etc., but
couldn't find any explanation.

(I already forged ahead by explicitly specifying --enable-ssl etc. to
configure, so that's fine, life goes on.  This is just to report the
issue for your consideration.)

Thanks,
karl@freefriends.org
