apxs did that when I did a `make install' the first time. We might
be able to convince it to do that by running it from the PLIST
file, too.

On the other hand, httpd config files are pretty site-specific
documents in many ways, and I'd be hesitant to make the next sighup
run the code just because it's installed; what if the person
installed it in order to add it to the test web server on the
machine, rather than the production one?
