"Normally I'm not a person who likes to use a lot of front-end automation tools when setting up a server; my preference is to dive in and apply a little elbow grease directly to configuration files."

"Now, I'm not so sure that that this is the most efficient approach after playing around with Apache Toolbox."

Direct from the Apache Toolbox Web site: 'Apache Toolbox provides a means to easily compile Apache with SSL, PHP (v4 or v3), MySQL, ZendOptimizer, mod_auth_nds, mod_dynvhost, WebDAV, mod_fastcgi, mod_gzip, mod_layout, mod_throttle, mod_accessref, mod_auth_sys, mod_bandwidth, mod_auth_ldap, mod_roaming, mod_perl, mod_jserv, OpenLDAP, and the latest gd libraries with PNG support. It is fully customizable and menu driven. Everything is compiled from source. It checks for RPMs that might cause problems and uses wget to automatically download the source if it's missing.'"
