nothing is getting clobbered

Some of us want the -std files though.  From time to time I (and
potentially many other people who start with Apache's basic
httpd.conf) compare httpd.conf and httpd-std.conf to see if I want to
merge in some of the Apache changes.

I don't think anybody would be in favor of not providing
httpd-std.conf; perhaps the issue is just where to put it when the
user does an install (from binbuild or from make install it should
work the same).
