loggerhead uses "apache" USE flag instead of "apache2"

Bug Description

The "apache" flag is deprecated, and we should either use the "apache2" flag, or allow both. I needed to run:

USE="apache" emerge -1av loggerhead

to get it to install paste-deploy, which is necessary for Apache proxing.

It works fine, but I didn't want to set anything with "apache" because I don't use apache 1.x.

Here's a simple patch that does it, I think.

Thanks for the bug report.

To be fair, Apache 1.x doesn't seem to be in portage anymore (for that matter, the ASF isn't going to have any more non-security releases either), so there's no way that one would "accidentally" install a 1.3.x version if one specifies USE=apache.

However, there is a valid point in that maintaining local USE flags is a pain, so I'm switching it for that reason. (Which is also why, unfortunately, the patch you've given isn't quite enough. It's something I learned when official Gentoo devs started to help me maintain the overlay.)

This has been fixed in r351.
