Yup, sorry, used AC_MSG_ERROR instead of AC_MSG_WARN for failure message
during distcache detection.

The behaviour of "reallyall" is such, that you can't --disable-* a
module. But when dependency checking fails the build should only disable
the module and not fail completely - unless you gave --enable_* for the
module or a --with-LIB=DIR for the library and the path or lib is
broken. This should be fixed now for mod_socache_dc, mod_deflate and
mod_lua in r1142892.

I can't comment on distcache maturity, because I never used it. But
remember, that (now) mod_socache_distcache is again optional. Distcache
for SSL session caching was already supported in 2.2.x via
ssl_scache_dc.c (not as a separate module, but builtin in mod_ssl).
