Ok. I had already seen the apache page detailing the fact that it
should already be available in the Apache distribution since 1.3.8,
which is why I was confused when I couldn't find it. The problem I have
now is how would I find out what options are available to be added to
CONFIGURE_ARGS? Is this something I would find somewhere in the ports
info or in the Apache docs?
Thanks for your help,
