Can I suggest a possible solution for 1, and agree 100% with 2?  The
possible solution, is to use two variables, LIBTOOL_LIBS, and
NON_LIBTOOL_LIBS.  These names are probably wrong, call they what you want

The idea is that if you use LIBTOOL, you have to add the libraries in
LIBTOOL_LIBS, if not you have to use NON_LIBTOOL_LIBS.  If you don't use
libtool, you basically have to add the NON_LIBTOOL_LIBS to APR_LIBS.

Does that make sense?
