Great, but it still doesn't solve such fatal problems as the grep bug.
And autoconf is not really debuggable for folks who are not really 
autoconf-experts ...

I'd suggest going away from it and writing the build stuff by hand. 
If it would be accepted, I'd be the first volunteer doing that.

Apropos testers: has there any work been done for completely automated
build- and run tests ?

I've got a fully automated distro builder system which could do nightly 
builds in a wide range of environments (currently only linux, but different 
kind of libc, other libs, features, etc) completely by itself and run 
some test programs over it. If someone could supply such test programs,
I could set up an completely automated test environment for apache.
