None of the major modules out there use this extra/ directory anymore.
For a static build they all create src/modules/<module_name> and things
get built from there, and for an external dynamic build they just use apxs
and don't need to write anything to the Apache source tree.  This extra/
dir dates back to the 1.2.x days and early 1.3 beta releases.
