I agree that this is useful.

The observed failure happens for 2.4.x as well, fixed in 1293818.
I haven't yet checked building against trunk, but currentyl trunk and 
2.4 are very close and since trunk is still used as the source of 
backported patches I expect that to stay like that for quite a while. 
Some bigger changes have been moved into another httpd development 
branch recently to keep trunk close to 2.4 right now.
