If you really want me to revert it I will.  Then we won't have any build 
system at all.

Maybe you are forgetting what we had before. A single makefile with 
paths hard coded for your home directory.

If you want to convert it to use httpd's build system, no one is 
stopping you.

FWIW, Automake doesn't require everything to be in src/, but it seems 
you are so tainted against the tool (Hey, I don't exactly love it 
either), that it doesn't matter that it currently _does_ work.
