Yep. With --enable-shared and --disable-shared you can build flood the
way you want it. Just tried both switches minute ago. Works like a

Uhmm. And since I saw few +1's for splitting APR/APR-util and httpd
releases, maybe we schould also get rid of those intree libs? I'll try
to play around with external APR/APR-util and see if flood builds clean
that way.

Well... I just though, that since we have to install just one file -- we
don't have to worry about 'file system pollution'. Given that we can't
get rid of that APR/APR-util cruft -- /usr/local/flood seems fine. But,
if you really don't like /usr/local (why? :), then we could use
/pkg/flood. I'm just against having flood version number in directory
name. As soon as we settle up with directory name, I'll commit this
patch. To be exact, here are my prefferences:

/usr/local/flood  +1
/pkg/flood        +0
/pkg/flood-1.0    -1
