Note: I don't think it is just SVN. Whenever an application includes
apr(util) in their build, they are going to have to reference the pieces of
APR from *anywhere* in their source tree. That implies they will do a lot of
".." munging, or they will use absolute paths.

Thus, I believe the better solution is simply for find_apr.m4 to always
return absolute paths in its "output variables".

I'll investigate. I'd also like to switch the code over to using apr-config
