A bit unclear on my part. If I configure apache with --disable-
module=negotiation, make all and make install. The whole gamut of 
multilingual 'index.html's are installed. That is index.html.en,,, etc. But there is no "index.html". So 
with no negotiation and "DirectoryIndex index.html" I can't see a 
default page unless I refer to it explicitly and include the language 
extension. So my issue is with the install. "Make install" should 
know that files with extensions for language negotiation are useless 
without mod_negotiation enabled, if that is possible. The worst part 
is that --disable-module=negotiation renders the online manual 
useless until I do "for file in `ls *.en`; do mv $file 
${file%\.en};done" in a few directories.
