That's what I was thinking - sorry, I should have been clearer.
ppm has a feature that, when one installs a ppm package, a script
from some server can optionally be fetched and run (by Perl, or
anything, actually). So what I could do for the Apache-Test ppm
package we have is use such a script to get the needed files for
the apxs script and run and install them (if the user wants) -
that way, a person running an older httpd-2.0 could just ppm
install Apache-Test from here, and apxs would also get installed
(of course, associating this script with Apache-Test is just
convenience - a user can fetch and run the script him/herself
manually). So this wouldn't require any changes to the
Apache-Test sources.
