OK. I see the problem. Thanks for the clarification.

It was my first idea. But I designed Makefile.modules.3rd to be usuable
with any apache version, so I decided to try previous hack ;)
If we can "impose" an apxs patch, we can use it to detect installed (a
-port option to apxs)
It should be discussed on apache@, during the freeze ;-).

No problem, Oliver, Makefile.modules.3rd is undocumented, uncommented,
not-so-readable and full of small tricks which seem stupid but fix many
problem you can face when you port apache modules.
We have the same purpose: a clean ports tree, and my job is just to
clean apache-related ports mess :-)
