I agree. Also, having better support for XML in Apache may also help to
spur new development directions.

Noted, but take heed that I'll try to change your mind later :-)

$SUBDIRS includes main, ap, and $OSDIR. If expat and/or regex are
configured, then $SUBDIRS will include them, too.

Basically, there were two lists of subdirs: $SUBDIRS and $MAKEDIRS. I
unified the two so that it is easier to simply add to $SUBDIRS and the
Right Thing would happen. Note that just putting expat into the original
$MAKEDIRS fails when the expat subdir is missing.
