I've never understood why Apache wants to be built in its final
install directory.  It seems really weird.

Our version has an install target.  We also distribute an
"install-apache" script that sets up a default server configuration.
It does what was suggested here -- it sets up the Apache manual as the
default content.  It also creates a short "apache" script that can be
used to stop/start the server (eg "apache start" or "apache stop").

I can send the install-apache script to anybody who is interested.
Parts of it are probably particular to our environment, but it might
still be useful.
