In performing this configuration, I decided to try out the new configuration 
procedure.  In doing so, I notice an apparent oversight in that at the
configure time, one is unable to set variables to be used in the compilation
easily.  I was trying to set HARD_SERVER_LIMIT without having to directly
modify the include/httpd.h file.  I tried modifying the Configuration.tmpl
but that did not work either.  However, modifying the Configuration.tmpl did
work for setting the OPTIM and LD_EXTRA_LIBS and LD_EXTRA_FLAGS 

In looking over the distribution
I'd like to do this in an "official" nice manner....but how? 

BTW, before asking the question, I did do distcleans between each generation 
just to be sure.
Maybe I am missing something or overlooking something but I changed the
EXTRA_CFLAGS variable to 


to no avail.
I'm without a clue....the unnice way is of course modifications through
include/httpd.h but there must be a way to do this....there must be....:-%2
