sure :)

there was already a cmodules target (as well as a cmodules_clean target).
they used to look like this:

        cd c-modules && $(MAKE) all

        cd c-modules && $(MAKE) clean

if you didn't already know, you can place apache C modules in
c-modules/name/mod_name.c and A-T will automatically compile them via apxs
and add a LoadModule to httpd.conf for you.  for a few examples, see

anyway, those two targets did not work as specified, since the Makefiles
under c-modules/ do not exist until you run t/TEST -conf (which is done
automatically when you run t/TEST) - simply running 'make cmodules' would bomb.

so, I added a test_config target as a prerequisite to the cmodules and
cmodules_clean targets so that you can now 'make cmodules' and it actually

does that help?
