I guess I wasn't clear.  I have automation that creates a new conf/, then copies
in httpd.conf* from the production conf/ with appropriate edits.  So my conf/
directory exists, but doesn't contain mime.types (or several other files which
aren't relevant on daedalus).

make install runs after that.  It used to copy in everything except the
httpd.conf file, which worked perfectly for me.  Now it doesn't copy *any* of
the conf/* files because the directory exists.  It would be better if we did
this on a more granular level, i.e. check to see if the individual file exists
in the target dir, then copy/don't copy as appropriate.

If we had a customized mime.types, I wouldn't want it to get clobbered.  I think
the old code would have done that.
