The on-line documentation for suexec makes reference to 
"APACI's suEXEC configuration options".  The documentation does not explain
how to use these options, however.  

I tried (from the src directory) doing 

./Configure --layout


./Configure --enable-suexec

and always get 

"ERROR: Bad command line option"


So I've gone ahead and manipulated the suexec.h file directly.  Anyhow, you 
should add a bit of documentation (perhaps an example?) of how to use
these flags.  Maybe you could add something to both the suexec doc, and the
general Apache installation doc.
