Yeah... Ideally a compile-time parameter would be good, but I'm sure
that people would also like run-time as well... I'm +0 on either
approach. Note that the patch assumes that you always want to
see the OS-type on non-header uses of ap_get_server_version
(eg: mod_status and when showing compile settings)
