Not a big issue, and normally people wouldn't come across this.

I downloaded the 2.3 alpha and unzipped it, then decided to use the one with the dependencies instead. Extracting the new one placed 'httpd-2.3.10 (2)' on the desktop.

When you're in the folder, ./configure works fine, but make won't. You have to change the folder name to something else (I used apache2.3) and it works fine then.

Not the biggest bug in the world, and sorry if it's in the wrong category, but it's the best I could figure out.
