That reminds me. We really should be installing Apache modules with
'libtool --mode=install', because on some platforms that is _not_ just
a simple copy like you'd expect; sometimes it has to do other things.
(In particular, the "executable in-tree" copy and the "installed" copy
of an executable or library may need to be linked differently.)

We'd have to work around libtool's sanity check on the install path.
(Why does it do this? Who knows.) I guess "install" to a temporary
directory, then do a normal copy from there to the real location.

This is kind of a bite-sized task if anyone wants to take it on. I've
been meaning to get to it myself for ages and ages - I don't have a
very good track record of finding time to do even the little things for
svn.
