Uhm, why do you need to export as well as import the same set of
symbols? I would believe the httpd core needs -bE... and any DSO needs
the -bI... stuff. As I am not that familar with the configure stuff I
always copied the httpd.exp file into my installed include directory
and hacked the apxs by hand.

I would believe a LDFLAGS_DSO_EXTERNAL would do it, one might need a
different set of flags for DSO's and shared libraries.
