Doesn't this create (at least) the file in
/apps/httpd/modules/ directory?

For, as I said in the other thread, the correct way to
enable the build of a module is --enable-<module_name> (for
mod_<module_name>.so), thus for mod_header: --enable-headers.

I think shared modules (i.e. .so files) are used by default with this
method, but otherwise you could specify it explicitely:
--enable-ssl=shared --enable-headers=shared.

So the complete command should be something like:
$ ./configure --prefix=/apps/httpd --enable-so --enable-ssl=shared
--enable-headers=shared --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl --with-mpm=worker

Also, please note the modules are really installed once you do the
usual "make && sudo make install" after the above "./configure".
