Right. Thanks for bearing with me, and sorry for not doing my
homework properly.

I'm attaching three patches, hope something there seems useful to you.

The first two of them both implement your suggestion in different 
(but mutually compatible) ways.

The third patch is one more try at putting a Debian/Ubuntu specific
workaround in: it now falls back the compiled in HTTPD_ROOT value,
which should be equivalent to PREFIX on non-buggy systems and which is
already parsed from 'httpd -V' output.

Thanks again,
Niko Tyni
