  But Tim also has 1.2.9 running that I suspect he doesn't want blown away
as he migrates to Apache 2.3, and on that basis, I would *not* use the
portmanager at all, for fear it would overwrite the existing 1.2.9 Apache.

  Also, when you run configure and do *not* give it the --prefix option, the
default location for installing Apache is "/usr/local/apache2/".
