I agree. There are some (minor) differences caused by particular OS'es. 
But the majority of modules can be included on any build - rewrite, proxy,
setenvif, etc. We should decide which modules are going into the default
binary builds, then make all builds include those modules. And the
Configuration file should be updated to build the same set of modules, by
default. People can easily comment in or out the AddModule lines as they
need, but at least they are starting with something consistent with the
binary kits.
