Are you blind?  You quoted what's wrong.  The build scripts assume you
are installing into /var/www, /usr/lib/cgi-bin, etc as defined in the
Debian Layout.  I would like to be able to alter the layout in a single
file, run `./debian/rules build`, and have the build process alter the
post*, pre*, etc files to adhere to my customizations.

I am well aware that there are ten different ways to do this the "hard
way".  I can build apache from the official apache source tarball, but
I'd like to be able to install a customized deb package that's easy to
maintain (ie. I don't want to have to go in and hack up the build
scripts every time I upgrade).
