More Feats Or Better Enhancements?

Hello all, I have been thinking of a ways to make my melee toons better, so I was thinking... should I splash them with Fighter 4 or 6 for more feats or Barbarian 4 (maybe 6) for better enhancements?

Few things to consider:

1) My usual go to is Rogue 2/whatever 18, because I wanna be able to trap. So I don't mind changing the build as long as I have Rogue 2 and other melee class (not Fighter or Barbarian) as the dominant one.

2) I will be doing this splashing on my main toon which uses Greataxes, no I will not be changing this weapon (Greataxe is life, greataxe is love).

3) Please don't say, "Just copy this build or that build and be done with it". I wanna better my toon but I don't wanna copy builds just to be overpowered.

Thank you in advanced for the suggestions and answers!
