You're not the only one who would like to see --disable-mod-activate.
I'd definitely be in favour of creating that option, and of seeing
DESTDIR support in gen_base.py. In fact I have almost the exact same
patch already in my local tree. The only reason I haven't committed
yet, is that I get errors when installing mod_dav_svn.so, since
$(DESTDIR)/usr/local/apache2/modules doesn't actually exist, so
inst_dso.sh can't copy it there. If you have a work around for that
problem, I'll commit your patch.
