[mod_python] Apache EAPI

As fas as I understand, if Apache didn't crash immediately after or even
before issuing the EAPI warning, then you're using one of those C
compliers (gcc probably) that fill missing parts of strucures with NULLs
and you're safe.

But if the warning bothers you, you can add OPTS=-DEAPI in src Makefile.
Other than suppressing the warning, it will have no effect whatsover.
