Understand that if it's provided on the command line, the command line overrides.
It really is just a default.  But as you point out, bringing it in from the environment
requires that we protect it in an empty value test.

Right now we have it to initialize INSTDIR twice, and that's obviously wrong,
so I've adopted your suggestions, including reporting the APACHE2_HOME value.

I think all appropriate changes are now made, please review :)
