Good changes (perhaps C:\ServerRoot, to be consistent though?  I can see a
truly novice user retaining the D:, while they have no D: drive :-)

Hmmm.  Interesting, although often one is building the tree in the manner
it is distributed, that is src is the folder within the ServerRoot, and
the INSTDIR=.. - but this gives me an even more interesting idea; if the
httpd.conf is not found, and httpd.conf-dist-win is present, autogenerate
a proper httpd.conf on startup?

Complaining?  I don't remember your name as a complainer, at least not once
you start submitting patches for the fixes you want to see :-)
