There is a serious bug in the apache 1.3.22 configuration when using a custom LAYOUT in which
the documentation for some reason installs into the /
directory and then proceeds to charg the entire system.
here is a layout I have used for years now to cause a problem
where the documentation will for some reason install in root directory /
and then proceed to charg the entire system and basically can destroy a servers security

<Layout MyNetwork>
    prefix:        /usr/local
    exec_prefix:   $prefix
    bindir:        $exec_prefix/bin
    sbindir:       $bindir
    libexecdir:    $exec_prefix/libexec
    datadir:       $prefix/www
    iconsdir:      $datadir/icons
    htdocsdir:     $datadir/htdocs
    cgidir:        $datadir/cgi-bin
    mandir:        $prefix/man
    includedir:    $prefix/include/apache-1.3
    localstatedir: $prefix/www/server
    sysconfdir:    $prefix/www/server/conf
    runtimedir:    $prefix/www/server/logs
    logfiledir:    $prefix/www/server/logs
    proxycachedir: $prefix/www/server/proxy
