RFC: Remove static Apache module support

From: Max Bowsher <maxb1_at_ukf.net>

I would like to propose that support for building statically-linked
Apache modules be removed.

According to issue #997 and
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2008-02/0085.shtml, this support has been
broken since mid-2002, *well before* Subversion 1.0.

Therefore I think that this build method is too obscure to be worthy of
the maintenance burden of supporting it.

A pleasant side effect of removing it will be that the --with-apache
configure option will go away and no longer confuse users trying to
build normal (shared) Apache modules.

Further, as this change is mainly a removal of broken code, I think it
should be considered for 1.5.x backport.

Max.
