Proposal: Rename ./configure --with-apache to --with-static-apache

From: Max Bowsher <maxb_at_ukf.net>

People often want to build mod_dav_svn as a shared module, but seldom want
to statically link it into the apache binary.

However, new users viewing our ./configure --help output keep
noticing --with-apache, and not noticing --with-apxs, and doing the wrong
thing.

Therefore, I propose to rename --with-apache to --with-static-apache, and
make specifying --with-apache a fatal error.

Regarding compatibility issues - whilst we shouldn't unnecessarily change
./configure options, I don't think the ./configure command line is totally
frozen like an API, and the decreased possibility for confusion will be well
worth it in this instance, I think.

Max.
