md5, sigs good, tar.Z and tar.gz same contents.

I did only diff and build yet, not yet run and test, but already noticed 
the following things:

Observations of yet unclear relevance
=====================================

FAQ seems incomplete
--------------------

File htdocs/manual/misc/FAQ.html was previously 150KB and now is only 
5KB. I didn't yet load it from the web server itself, but it seems some 
generation step was missing. The file installed by "make install" has 
the same problem.

New file htdocs/manual/expand.pl
--------------------------------

It's in the branch, but wasn't shipped with the previous tarball. The 
file is also installed by "make install".

File src/Configuration missing
------------------------------

In the previous tarball it was a copy of Configuration.tmpl. Now it is 
missing. I guess it's not a show stopper (using Configuration.apaci myself).

Update of ABOUT_APACHE
-----------------------

Only in case any of the above warrants rolling a new tarball, it might 
be good to update ABOUT_APACHE also w.r.t. the EOL state of 1.3.x.


Minor things, because not relevant to tarball
=============================================

- Once 41 -> 42 conversion missing in html file
- only in html version: added paragraph about CHANGES_1.3.42 is

Old Announcement file on dist directory

File "Announcement1.3" on the official download page
is still as of version 1.3.39, should likely be copied from file 
Annoucement1.3.txt when populating the official DL dir.
