The ServerRoot directive in the default httpd.conf is set to ${prefix} 
by the httpd buildsystem, there is a direct equivalence there, I think 
it's certainly correct for apxs to query the PREFIX variable.  Yes, lots 
of stuff isn't documented, that's a good reason to improve the docs not 
to drop stuff from packages ;)

How about a patch to avoid running apxs unless it proves necessary, if 
the only problem is the stderr warnings in this case?
