I don't know if it's really clearly defined anywhere, but I always took
"yes" to mean enable it, and --enable-mods-shared=most/yes to mean
"take all those enabled modules and make them shared".

Would another setting of "static" be a good compromise? That
way mod_mime and mod_http can default to static even if you do
--enable-mods-shared=most/all, and then the others will become DSOs
if that same parameter is set.
