Yeah, I guess this would work too. I still think it makes it
a little more obvious having the conf file explicity mentioned;
maybe you could just expand the comments in the file with an extra
line like:

# for example, to specify a different conf file add '-f /path/to/file'
> Was you apachectl file created/modified by ./configure?

It was generated by configure, and works really well; all the other
vars/etc are set correctly. Just thought that one suggestion
might clear things up a little...

By the way, thanks for the quick response, and keep up the good
work... :-)
