I've refactored a ton of extra build cruft from trunk to try to reduce
mod_ftp to the minimum required to build.

The obvious solution was to use apxs to create the makefile or simply
compile the module (and why not? - that's what it's supposed to do.)

The simple example of how-to-build is already in STATUS.  I just updated
it in trunk because we changed the depth from src/ to modules/ftp/.

I also committed the 'generated' resources.  These shouldn't change in
most cases.  Win32 should regenerate them, I hope, but need to test (the
windows generation should undef all these common defined unix facilities.)

Yes.  Although right now each is treated as a subrequest, and I don't
know offhand the mechanics in mod_cache that bypass subrequest elements.

Changing mod_ftp to handle each request as a top-level request would
solve this - of course.

mod_ftp entirely honors the filter chain.
