Two reasons:

1) we locate all the objects to add to the library using "find". it is
   easier to find them under "src/" rather than enumerating each source
   subdir. We can't use "." because that would pick up "test/".

2) to keep the top-level cleaner. we have eight groups of functionality in
   apr-util/src/. tossing those up a level would make that a bit more
   confusing. Currently, the top-level has: build/, docs/, include/, src/,
   and test/. Each is obvious in purpose.
