Yes, yes, what I was saying is that how the interactive config should know 
whether it's Apache 1 or Apache 2 that the user is after? or did you want to 
suggest it after user has specified the value for httpd and then if you figure 
out that it's for Apache2 and there is no apxs, you'd suggest to install it? I 
think that sounds like a working solution.
