LINK_APACHE_MOD contains "-rpath $(APACHE_LIBEXECDIR)", but when building
statically, APACHE_LIBEXECDIR is not given a value, thus causing the -rpath
option to take what ever happens to be next in the command line as its
value, which, not being an absolute path, causes libtool to die with the
complaint that rpaths must be absolute. Guaranteed build error, I think.

It would not be too complicated to tweak the Makefile to proceed, but since
the brokenness has been allowed to persist for 3 years without a fix, I
wonder if anyone is using this feature.

Max.
