!? Again: what has APACI / configure to do with the "well known" way
(i.e., manually editing suexec.h)? If you ignore configure, you won't
be bothered by its functionality (It will never interfere with your
src/Configuration file).  But IF YOU USE IT, you will be
rewarded by an astonishingly easy way to configure your whole server
environment in a (albeit complicated long) single line. That's a
killer criterion for all those vendors out there who want to repeatedly
and reproducably generate the same (in different version numbers)
binary Apache package.

JMHO,
