Subject [PATCH] fix --enable-mods-shared=most for compiled-in modules

This patch fixes the problem described in the STATUS file whereby modules
that are compiled-in by default would not be enabled as DSOs when the
--enable-mods-shared=most parameter was passed to configure.

A new enable state was invented: "static". This is specified as a param
to the APACHE_MODULE() macro to specify that a particular module shall
not be compiled as a DSO (unless specifically overridden by name). mod_so
and mod_http have been set to "static" in this patch.

This patch should not affect anyone who normally omits
--enable-mods-shared from their configure parameters.

I will follow up this patch in a few days with a patch to have configure
properly build the LoadModule directives for httpd.conf at install time
(as noted by Ryan above and in the STATUS diff below)...
