Right _now_ the only way to be sure to build correctly, is to do it from the
sources, and so that's what I'm going to do. If, in the future, the build
and installation process for APR will allow us to build also from a possible
APR distribution, I'll be more than happy to support it... But now, it's
better to switch.

Who said that for Apache 2.0 there will be 2 different versions of APR? I
never did (I actually said quite the contrary, that it would be cool to link
against the HTTPd binary as they do in BeOS.

Hmmm... That's why you don't want to build mod_webapp using the APR sources?

You see? How can I get access to APRVARS if I don't use the APR sources?
Should I just wait for APR to be released as 1.0 to start working on
mod_webapp again? The _right_ way to do it _now_ is using APR from the
sources... It's actually the _only_ simple way. As Apache 2.0 does.

DOH! ???? So why do you keep saying that you're against using sources...
Since all those problems are simply fixed by using them....
