I did test it if it stays attached and if the service itself is
operational. I wanted to let you do the cygrunsrv magic, it's your
thing I guess.

The apache-1.3.22-3 source tree is available from the location I
announced and the -4 patch applies to it. the /usr/doc/Cygwin readme
describes the configure flags to be used. It's pretty forward and
builds in <= 3 min.

-n is used for the Win32 native port as you pointed out. I'm not sure
what the Apache officials think about this. They may claim that this
may lead to confusion. Anyway, if we decide to have a flag, I would
appritiate it if it is OS-wide, that means any UNIX platform may use
it to run with no-detach. I have posted a RFC for this on the Apache
developers list.
