Assuming you mean "compiled by default".  When you build Apache and
don't ask for any specific modules, and don't ask for "most" or "all"
modules, you get a very minimal httpd with a small number of modules
statically compiled into your httpd binary.  It has external
dependencies, and it's not required for a minimal server, so it's not
in this lowest common denominator bucket of enabled modules.

OT: Please consider posting in-line instead of at the top of each
thread, top-posting makes the discussion very difficult to follow.
