For the stock source distribution "make install" doesn't touch the 
Apache configuration files. Instead it just outputs the message
	"Now don't forget to edit your main config and add"
	"LoadModule python_module $(LIBEXECDIR)/mod_python.so"
	"and if your configuration uses ClearModuleList, then also"
	"AddModule mod_python.c"

I don't know if Nicolas has some other magic in his Windows binary 
installers however.
