lib/imapopts.c is generated by tools/config2header, so syntactic changes
will need to be handled there.

Oh wow it looks like the httpd.h and httpd_dav.h files aren't included
in the release tarball.  I guess you're the first person to try building
from the tarball with the --enable-http option passed to configure,
congratulations. :(

This should be fixed in the next beta, but in the meantime you might
have better luck using a clone of the git repo?   Clone links available

Thanks, patch applied.
