FreeBSD 2.2.5, but I assume its because of the configure script itself.
I was using that APACI thing.
My directory exists as /usr/local/etc/apache, I put in ./configure --prefix =/usr/local --sysconfdir=/usr/local/etc/apache

(because httpd exists in /usr/local/sbin so the prefix is /usr/local and my config files are
in /usr/local/etc/apache. I also tried /usr/local and /usr/local/etc as the sysconfdirs.)
Unfortunately it tacked on /etc/apache again to the end of the sysconfdir. When I use /usr/local
it tacks on NOTHING, and when I use /usr/local/etc it tacks on apache/apache.... ... It got
so bloody annoying that I finally just made /usr/local/etc/apache/etc/apache and symlinked
the conf files.  

Make sure nothing is appanded to the sysconfdir variable if there is a / after it. Document
that feature. Infact, that should be done for all variables =}.

I might hack the script later and retarball the dist for archiving (we archive all our current
software source). If I do so then Ill be happy to email you the new script for testing.
