Synopsis: ./configure uses src/Configuration.tmpl, but docs refer to src/Configuration

This behavior is by design.  If you use the "configure" script in the root directory, then
you must make all changes on the configure command line (see the ./INSTALL file), and you
should not touch src/Configuration.  If you edit src/Configuration, then you must use src/Configure
(see src/INSTALL).

I agree this is confusing, and perhaps not well documented, but you need to be sure not to
mix the two systems.  This problem has gone away in Apache httpd 2.0 since autoconf is used.

Thanks for using Apache!
