Current mod_perl tarballs reference OPT_INC_WITH_EXEC as part of mapping the
httpd API into perl, and the mod_perl build fails because of this.

("modperl_config.c", line 525: undefined symbol: OPT_INCNOEXEC)

While I don't understand why the mod_perl mappings are created at release
time against who knows what httpd, it brings up an interesting httpd issue

If some module does have OPT_INCNOEXEC baked in (32), it matches what
2.2.12+ thinks is OPT_INC_WITH_EXEC.  Similarly, the old OPT_INC_WITH_EXEC
(previously called OPT_INCLUDES), maps what 2.2.12+ thinks is

We could swap the values of OPT_INCLUDES and OPT_INC_WITH_EXEC to lessen the
chance of some theoretical module making the wrong decision.

We can also define OPT_INCNOEXEC to something (either the new OPT_INCLUDES
or "Get your mod_perl patch at XXX").
