Yes, unlike me, I am quitting this discussion. I am too a very big fan of
the "if ain't broke don't fix it" approach. I just hoped that given the
fact that currently there is a development cycle going on somebody might
listen. But  it is obvious that this issue was debated to death on this
mailing list and there were no conclusions in the end.

And the whole dispute went from using another configuration path, more
widely used in the unix world to things like switching to GPL, using too
much of the FSF things, etc.

- Patching httpd.h to accomodate the Linux File System standard
(installing by default in the /usr/local is broken, having apache look by
default in /usr/local/etc is also broken) 
- Patching Makefile to accomodate different compiler args on Alpha, Sparc
and Intel

So, "I am in" for using Configure.

 UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective about who its friends are.
