ah, ok.  I didn't see how ap_config.h was pulling in the apxs prefix.  cool.

how about something like the attached patch?  it seems to work for me under 
1.3 and 2.0, and dies on a 1.3 with no ServerRoot and no mod_so.  mike, can 
you give it a whirl?

one thing I noticed is that if ServerRoot is not specified in httpd.conf 
then Apache-Test can't resolve relative Include directives (such as 
conf/ssl.conf), so they need to be postponed until later in order to be 
picked up as they would if ServerRoot were specified.
