All three choices are fine, but I'm leaning toward B and C
for these reasons:

- IMHO, most people get apache in a pre-built binary form, so it matters
   not to them how it is source distributed.

- It is also my opinion that those who seek the source distribution would
   prefer flexibility in the build system over the minor inconvenience
   of having to download a couple extra files (that are nonessential to
   barebones ./configure-with-no-options web serving).

- We should use the proxy and ldap modules to promote community usage
   of (*)

(* I think this is an important one)
