apr-util has not yet been updated to use the same configure methods
as the other stuff.  I meant to do that last week but got sidetracked
by a customer issue that turned into a 3rd-party library issue that
turned into a "how can servlets be this f*cked-up?" issue and hence
is now a JSR issue. ;-)

It is hard to make that change without doing major rework, but feel free
to hack it if you want to -- I'll just work around it when I can.
What needs to happen is apr-util should be building apr and importing
its variables just like httpd is doing to apr now, and then httpd should
be switched to just build apr-util and import variables from apr-util
rather than apr.
