Have you even *tried* to run './buildconf' in an extracted httpd 2.2.0

The default case with no arguments works exactly as expected.  It only goes
wonky if you give it bad arguments.  It might not be as robust as we might
like (the fact that it switches directories means passing --with-apr
doesn't work as expected - yawn - don't specify the args!).

The case remains that the default arguments (i.e. none) to buildconf work.
If this particular corner case bugs you so much, you can go and commit a
fix yourself - I'll even vote for it to be backported for 2.2.1.
