I noticed this recently as well - it was added on FreeBSD in one of the
latest updates.  If you goto and search for
apache you can view the history of the port and see when / why it was

if you look down to the 1.3.29-1 update you find:

Add warning file names to *-dist directories to prevent people modifying


[21:04:19] munk@users /usr/ports/www/apache13# grep

so you can see the command is executed via the Makefile.
