Correct me if I'm wrong, but your patch has:

-# Port: The port to which the standalone server listens. For
-# ports < 1023, you will need httpd to be run as root initially.
-Port @@Port@@

What I'm suggesting is adding:

Listen @@Port@@

I sort of agree with Aaron about run-time configuration options, but
not enough that I want to edit files manually.  =)

This concept has always been a topic of debate between Aaron and
myself - we talked about this for a long time when we did flood.
I'd be curious to see what other people think.

I think build-time options can specify the defaults - they can
always be overriden later...  -- justin
