If your going to build a binary RPM for apache, it would be a good idea to
take advantage of Mr Sameer's mod_so module.

I have allready testing this with basically all of the standard apache
modules compiled as so files, have also gotten the PHP 3 to compile and
load as a .so module as well.

The only thing that needs to be done is make changes to the Configuration
script so you can specify in their which modules should be loaded
dynamically, and what should be compiled in. 

The other thing to consider with this, is some mechanism of being able to
load a module rpm, and have it automatically included into the apache.

Getting the .so file in is easy, is there some way of being able to do say
a /etc/httpd/conf.d directory? Where anything in there will be loaded as
well as the httpd.conf etc?

Each file you would put in there say from a php RPM package, would
contain the necessary LoadModule commands, and anything else php would
