Doesn't this needlessly create a new directory on the machine?  And, it doesn't
clean that dir until the next time you try to configure.  At the very least,
we should execute the '$RM -rf test' command after the grep.  It would actually
be possible to just do 'grep STANDARD20 $APXS'.  This is because
the perl script actually has a copy of the module in it.  That is probably the
cleanest solution.

It looks like when Tomcat returns a 302 through mod_webapp, we are
redirected to a strange port.  I haven't even begun to look at it yet, but I
am hoping to have time either today or tomorrow.
