Agreed. It is difficult however to install Apache into a BSD environment
for example if you wish to conform to the "standard".  ie /var/run, /var/log,

Nothing that can't be accomplished at runtime, but for organizations
that are supporting Apache on these systems, limiting the number of
ways a user could go astray is a good thing.
