So I think I covered both issues in the last patch... Your comments
on that patch (even in concept-only) would be helpful.

What did we mean here?  It will pick up their real server IP, so I
assume this is mute?  I realize we need to go back and address two
complaints, the lack of --ntservice docs and the message blatted
at the user for their missing ServerName.  I just threw them in

Since Win32 users really don't know how to build their own binaries,
I figured the example of what is explicitly linked would be good, no?
The main dist-conf really is subject to compiler options we don't
offer on Win32 (it's really all or nothing.)  Do you see this as an
issue yet and still?  To fix it under Unix would be a dynamic file
listing what is built in, showing them (commented out) as AddModule
diretives.  Does anyone have an issue with the httpd.conf-dist-win
example on this?
