  +         Note: To reduce the pollution of shared installation locations
  +               (like /usr/local/ or /etc) with Apache files to a minimum the
  +               string ``/apache'' is automatically appended to 'libexecdir',
  +               'sysconfdir', 'datadir', 'localstatedir' and 'includedir' if
  +               (and only if) the following points apply for each path
  +               individually:
  +
  +                   1. the path doesn't already contain the word ``apache''
  +                   2. the path was not directly customized by the user
  +
  +               Keep in mind that per default these paths are derived from
  +               'prefix' and 'exec-prefix', so usually its only a matter
  +               whether these paths contain ``apache'' or not. Although the
  +               defaults were defined with experience in mind you always should
  +               make sure the paths fit your situation by checking the finally
  +               chosen paths via the --layout option.
  +
        Use the --compat option to install Apache into a installation tree which
        has a similar layout than the one used with Apache 1.2.
