I really think is kinda lame to do to folks...What if someone installs apache
and is working on something that's not in pkgsrc? They should now have 
scripts which don't install the proper dependencies to work?

In any case for now I backed this out and put the apache buildlink into 
ap-aolserver (which caused this).

We really need somewhere that has an overview of all of the buildlink files :-)
