The constant problem on tomcat-dev (and maybe tomcat-user, I don't
subscribe to that) is that people keep running into problems with MM.
mod_webapp is the only program, AFAIK, where APR is expected to be
installed rather than build from the source.

On most Unix-based platforms, APR requires MM (included in the APR
source/tree), but does not include it in libapr.la - you need to also 
link against it.  The problem is that this is only noted in APRVARS -
which isn't installed by APR - it only lives in the source dirs.

I kind of think that the only solution to this is to use something 
similar to apxs - which is strikingly similar to gtk-config et al - 
and even more "helpful" as it defines your compiler, etc, etc.  There 
just isn't any standard way of specifying external dependencies that 
APR programs should expect.  -- justin
