Perhaps your OS/init scripts was starting the older version of httpd
in a manner you did not understand; this functionality hasn't changed
since httpd 1.3 at the latest. 2.0 documents it explicitly:

Some/most Linux distributions will have init scripts that
automatically insert "-DFEATURE" that cause parts of their generic
httpd.conf to activate, based upon whatever way of expressing
preferences that distribution has blessed.

Eg, in gentoo, you edit "/etc/conf.d/apache2" and add APACHE"_OPTS="-D
SSL", where as in Debian you would run the command "a2enmod ssl",
which presumably does something similar behind the scenes.
