I just wanted to comment on this little bit. IMHO, it has nothing to do
with how hard it is to automate the configuration, and everything to do
with "the way we configure apache". The more runtime options we add as
autoconf parameters for build-time, the less consistent our configuration
interface becomes. That leads to more confusion for the user on how to
normally configure these things.
