You mean how the stock FC10 was built?  Considering I am using "the" 
apache manual, I would hope this does not matter w/r/t to an incredibly 
basic issue: my cgi-bin files cannot write to anywhere.  Also, I prefer 
to learn to use and understand apache rather than trying to just 
replicate a single scenario which, evidently, I do not understand.  I 
should be able to run httpd and have the cgi scripts read/write files.  
I do not believe that is an "optional" feature of a web server.

So I will pick option B:

1) ./configure
   make check -- there is no check
   make test -- there is no test
   make install (everything seems ok!)

2) <Directory "/var/www/html">
	Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
	AllowOverride All
	Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

I suppose that is insecure, but I am just using this on my desktop.

Again, SELinux is disabled.
