the idea is primary for packaging but make sense since
therfe is a --with-port. Just to be consistent.

Yes, but mod_jk/mod_webapp include it in all their
makefile and cause me problems. Question, should we
include in a module build Makefile ?

Yes, but the apachectl is using HTTPD='@prefix@/bin/@progname@'
instead of HTTPD='@sbindir@/@progname@'

Also in apachectl, @prefix@/logs/, instead
of as it was it Apache 1.3.

Fortunatly these should be easy to fix :)
