AFA apxs is concerned; IMHO, no.  The user wants to find apxs without
any extra 'magic'.  It belongs on the path where they can find the
default apxs associated with the system httpd.  (Or they have a second
httpd installed in /usr/local/, and they have /usr/local/bin first
in their path.)

Ditto ap[ru]-1-config, and to state it again; we have no say - if you
want to move that around, please take that discussion to dev@apr.
I know it would be vetoed for the remaining lifespan of 0.9/1.x, but
anythings up for consideration with 2.0.  But you are thinking very
httpd-centric :)
