 I've just taken a look at configure.  --with-apache-libexecdir runs
that apxs command, so I guess just adding an explanation like
"this command uses apxs to discover the libexecdir used by apache" ?
[ with markup, of ocurse ].  I can pick this up if that suggestion
is ok.

 I see that the following create directories in /usr/libexec, I
suppose that we need to document these [ possibly, some are already
done, I haven't checked that yet ] :

git (creates git-core/),
gstreamer (both, they create -0.10 and -1.0),
pulse (turns out I've already built this - the directory is empty on
 my pulse-avoiding system),

 I can pick up any/all of this, including removing the old command
explanations, but I'd like to confirm that the directories in
/usr/libexec should be documented, please.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
