I think that's because there is a very high chance that both httpd
and APR may have multiple installed versions in parallel. I doubt
that flood will be used in the same conditions, and if it is they
should use the same thing everyone else uses to install in a new
location: --prefix. It really is a pain for users when autoconf-based
projects go and try to do their own thing.
