We're using includes in the Apache 2.0 makefiles. I'm not sure whether this
is going to make Apache 2.0 less portable or not. There haven't been any
issues yet, though.

(I think the makefile organization came from PHP; assuming that is as
 portable as Apache 1.3, then makefile includes are pretty darn portable)

IMO, I say "start using makefile includes" and see who screams. VPATH is not
portable, though.
