Excerpts from the 1.1.0rc2 configure help:

   --disable-mod-activation
                           Do not enable mod_dav_svn in httpd.conf
   --with-apache=DIR Build static Apache module. DIR is the path
to the
                           top-level Apache source directory.
   --with-apxs[=FILE] Build shared Apache module. FILE is the optional
                           pathname to the Apache apxs tool; defaults to
"apxs".

I am about to create a patch for this; which would you like to see?

I could change them to:

     --with-http-static (instead of --with-apache)
     --with-http-dynamic (instead of --with-apxs)

and add:

     --disable-httpd

Also, do you make any guarantees WRT configure options not changing?
If so, I can mark the old --with options as deprecated in the help
text and support both until 2.0?
