+This seems to be an apxs or apache build bug.
+The prefix variable in /etc/apache2/build/config_vars.mk is defined as
+nothing. I do not know if this is ok, but exec_prefix = ${prefix}/usr
+which is consistent. Consequently, apxs get an empty value for
+CFG_PREFIX. Because the value is empty, apxs refuse to modify it.
+An easy workaround is to remove all -S redefinition in the command
+apxs in src/Makefile of mod_mono. This was the behaviour of mod_mono
+before 1.0.2 and install the module in /usr in place of /usr/local.
+I really dunno what should be the normal behaviour of apache. May be
+the bug should be forwarded to the apache team.
