The easy/clean way to implement that would be in apachectl.
You use three <IfDefine>s, and pick the right one from your MYVAR1
within apachectl.

You can do more with <If ....>, and of course a great deal more with
a scripting language.  But that would be overkill for selecting from a
menu of pre-defined options.
