That is a powerful argument in general, but please note that what is
in CVS now will not build on my Mandrake 7.2 box (GNU m4 1.4, autoconf
2.13, glibc 2.1.3) while it will build on my RedHat 6.0 box (GNU m4
1.4, autoconf 2.13, glibc 2.1.1).

While changing the m4 may help some get the APR_FLAG_HEADERS() stuff
to work, it looks to me that even libc differences make a difference.
Or maybe it is because my Mandrake 7.2 box is a laptop.
