Let me get this straight... Modifying a commented text file (Configuration)
in order to compile apache is broken because you have to edit the file...
Yes listing --opt1 --opt2 ... --opt99 ISN'T???

Hah!  I would _much_ rather have Apache's current method of configuring
what modules I want, etc.  Now, it would be nice if it took care to do
all the cflags and libs that I need by itself in some type of autoconf
deal.  But I would _never_ agree that autoconf alone would make apache
easier to compile, if anything it would drive many a person to distraction.
