I can't find them in the headers on any of my systems... I had just
assumed the were #ifdef'ed to allow overriding by the user.  But hey,
whatever... what you have below is probably good anyhow.

By the way I'm suspecting the fact that we have APR_MMAP_THRESHOLD
defaulting to _1 byte_ is bad.  mmap() is probably much too expensive on
many systems to justify that.  That's just a hunch, but the threshold we
want is really probably significantly higher than one byte.  It's a good
spot for some per-platform performance tuning, at least.  I'd guess it
probably shouldn't go above what we're willing to use as
APR_BUCKET_BUFF_SIZE (currently 8KB), but even that is debatable.
