Why can't you just do this in the Configuration file?  If you need
different compiler args, there is a place in the Configuration file for it
and anyway why do you need special compiler args for the redhat package? 
If something is broken in Apache, it should be fixed.

If you need to change the defines in httpd.h, all the ones that can't be
changed in the config file are ifdefed in 1.2.5 so you can just add the
define in your Configuration file; in 1.2.6 nearly all are ifdefed.

If you have specific problems, feel free to raise them and they can be
dealt with.  It doesn't require autoconf.
