Well, you have to relink the actual httpd binary.  Like I mentioned, I
could see there being some sort of top-level configure flag to link in a
third-party static library, but it needs to be controlled from the Apache
side of things.  I suppose this could be directly in apxs as well and apxs
would run off and re-link/re-compile the httpd.
