Just put in the docs (tomcat-apache-howto.html) that 3.2 makes
"tomcat-apache.conf" and 3.3 makes "mod_jserv.conf-auto"

Again, I like splitting off samples, but not functioning or
auto-created conf files.  They should each have a descriptive name to
limit the confusion you mentioned.

While we're housecleaning conf... Why does conf contain build.xml?
It's added here

    <copyfile src="build.xml" dest="${}/conf/build.xml"/>

but I can't see any real reason for it to be there since we never
recursively call Ant inside build...  If there's no objecttions, I'll
remove it.
