>   Subject: Correctly support EXTRA_LIBS and OS-dependent libs (AUX_LIBS)
>   Affects: Configuration Makefile.tmpl
>   Changelog: EXTRA_LIBS was used for two separate purposes in Configuration,
>         firstly, to provide libraries needed by modules, and secondly, to
>         provide OS-dependent libraries need globally by Apache. The second
>         use defeats the first, so a new variable, AUX_LIBS is introduced to
