I agree, but this comment in http_conf_globals.h threw me off:
/* Trying to allocate these in the config pool gets us into some *nasty*
 * chicken-and-egg problems in http_main.c --- where do you stick them
 * when pconf gets cleared?  Better to just allocate a little space
 * statically...

If I want to use pstrcat or use some other pool function in this area of
http_main, which, if any, pool* can I use?  Other recommendations?
