Ok, it's the result of my paranoya. I made /usr/local/apache2/modules/
writable by me and ran "make install" as user. I prefer to know which
directories the installers want to use, rather than give then carte
blanche to fill /usr/bin with things I may want to uninstall tomorrow.
On the other hand, I'm behind firewall and don't care about somebody
escalating permissions from my account to root, at least for now.

Note that "make install" succeeded. Apparently, apxs from Apache 2.0.41
doesn't consider the failure to open httpd.conf fatal (look for yourself,
it's a Perl script).

[proski@marabou svn-build]$ make install-mods-shared
chmod 755 /usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_dav_svn.so
[activating module `dav_svn' in /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf]
unable to open configuration file
[proski@marabou svn-build]$ echo $?
[proski@marabou svn-build]$

Yes, that would be nice, since installations can be different.
