short form: 

I want to move from top_builddir to
top_builddir/build/  Okay?

long form:

PR 10163 deals with some hard-coded paths that broke the makefile
created by apxs -g.  I just committed what ordinarily would make it
work, except for a basic problem:

. Apache build puts in top_builddir
. Apache install puts in prefix/build
. apxs wants to use snippets of Apache build support (e.g.,
  which assume that is not in the build subdirectory

To get apxs's use of et al to work needs to be
in a consistent place (in or out of the build subdirectory for both
Apache build and the installed copy of

The easiest fix is to install into prefix, but that is
ugly.  Always putting it in the build subdirectory seems nicer.  But I
can't help but wonder why it isn't there already.  Are there any
problems with that?
