Actually loading the module inside the <IfDefine> is exactly what was
meant.  The bug here is in apxs not FreeBSD.  I considered answering
this PR the same way you did Justin, but it is our problem.  The problem
is how apxs is adding modules.  Currently, apxs looks for the last
LoadModule in the config file, and just adds a new line after it.  If
the last module you load in your config is mod_ssl, then you are
susceptible to this problem.  The solution is to have a line like:

#LoadModule goes here

and always key off of that line.
