It's obviously different because we didn't have another httpd in base already.

Minor nit: we are not using gnu tar/cpio.
I don't understand the whole idea (besides I do not understand the advantages
of the new stuff well enough) - if we replace tar/pax/cpio with the new
stuff when it's ready, it will get good testing in -current after we branch
for 5.0 - but if it is installed under some obscure different name, it will
not be tested at all, so why import it?
