setenvif is already a default - it provides BrowserMatch which is a
required directory. It is also damn useful for other things even if I do
say so myself.

This soulds like a good set of modules (although I'm not so sure about
anon_auth - is it widely used?). 

I am a bit worried about auth_dbm though - it'll be linked to whatever dbm
lib is available of the build system which may be different from the end
user's (e.g. Linux could be gdbm, ndbm, etc). Which would be confusing if
the user then used dbmmanage with a different dbm format to build
htpasswd.dbm files which don't work.  Unless all these dbm libs build
compatible files and I'm worrying any mothing.
