Ok, thanks for your update.

The documentation for Apache says that ServerRoot is _typically_ used to
determine the base directory for log files and configuration files. (we should
mention modules/ there also, right.)

Actually it is used to resolve any relative path (that's what it's supposed to).
So if you want to keep your module files in the old path, you have to use
absolute paths and everything is fine.

If it didn't work that way in older versions it must be a bug there ;-).

Why can't httpd take the location where it starts from? The answer is simple. On
most systems (especially *x) there is no reliable way to determine this location.

I'm changing this report to be a docs enhancement.

Thanks for using Apache!
