Bug#307921: apache2-prefork-dev: should mention apxs in package description

Package: apache2-prefork-dev
Version: 2.0.54-2
Severity: wishlist

The apache2-<worker>-dev packages only state that they provide Apache
development headers in the package description, not that they provide
any binaries.

Compare this to the apache-dev package, which seems to provide a more
useful description.

apxs seems to be a major component of the -dev packages that is
mentioned in the official Apache documentation
<http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/dso.html>, yet it is not readily
apparent that these are the packages that provide it.

I would like for apxs (its canonical name in the docs) and/or apxs2 (the
name of the binary in the Debian packages) to appear in the package
description so it is readily searchable by "apt-cache search apxs".
