Yup,  that is probably what I'm going to start doing.  As an example, 
I've hit a snag with the ap-php4 package (it cores everytime I try to
run a php3 or php4 webpage).  I installed it OK, but hit a problem 
with the libtool breaking on the install.  If I'd done it with the 
subpackages, it would have (probably) gone a lot smooother.  I'll 
probably delete the entire package tonight and start over, just so 
that I can see what I've borked.
