I much prefer this.
e.g. the file /etc/httpd/modules.d/70_mod_php.conf just drops the
<IfDefine HAVE_PHP5> bit.
I really don't know what additional benefit the defines give you. Sure
you could then relatively easily run two version of httpd (e.g. on
different ports) one with a cut down install (e.g. no PHP for a static
site or similar), but IMO it's much more common to use a separate server
(e.g. lighthttpd) for this.
Varnish also kinda masks why this would be needed due to allowing lots
of different configurations of the underlying system.
So, as I cannot think of any real-world benefits to the defines, I think
they should be dropped.
That said, if he's about online, it might be worthwhile asking Oden
about it to see what he things generally (not Mageia specific)?
