The configure script
allows you to configure Apache using command line arguments
to specify options, such as which modules to enable. However
this cannot specify the order of the modules, which
can be important in some circumstances. From the next release
it will be possible to set the order of modules, where it is
required. This is done with the new --permute-module option, which is
given two module names separated by a colon showing the
relative order of those two modules (the lower priority one
first). Special cases allow the specification that a module
must appear as the highest or lowest priority.
