That was by accident because the checks in APACI where changed to use the
target name but we forgot that in the past the implicit target name was
"httpd" but the check was already done for "apache". So, instead of adding
such a compat section I think it's more useful to fix the problem. I've posted
the patch as a reply to the other related posting.
