I think we should invent a new layout that is unique to cygwin.
The default fort apache is --prefix=/usr/local/apache
So why not use /usr/apache as prefix so everything related to
apache is at a single subdirectory.

Now I remember asking to use a new directory for this kind of packages
(mysql, apache, ...) which could be /opt .
Then we have /opt/apache, /opt/mysql and so on.
