Well, if you are going to move an Apache tree, it seems logical that you
would want to fiddle with the paths in httpd.conf yourself as well.  Do
you really see a need for an automated way of doing this?  For people who
don't want to change the paths in their httpd.conf file, they can always
do a clean re-install with a different prefix path.
