Yes, this is vital. I'm still trying to grok the intention of
DEFAULT_REL_RUNTIMEDIR, but if we are talking about a file used as a
mutex/shared file/etc, wouldn't NOT having such a directive or
configuration parameter cause contention between multi-instance
configurations where "httpd -c /path/to/conf1.conf" and "httpd -c
/path/to/conf2.conf" end up pointing to the same file even though they
share nothing else in common? Seems like some stepping-on-of-toes would
occur unless I'm missing something else obvious.
