Why can this not be done?
At Con in April, SH_LDFLAGS was added to handle flags for AIX and BeOS
for DSOs only. I don't see why MacOS X can't do
SH_LDFLAGS="-Wl,-bundle_loader /path/to/apache". Further, in 2.0, DSOs
are built after the httpd (again, dating back to Con), so I don't see
why this is a problem either.

But maybe I'm blind. ;)
