As Aaron pointed out, I think there is no standard way of telling
autoconf to use a macro that doesn't have --with or --enable.  I
called it installbuilddir to match what httpd-2.0 calls the argument
with the same meaning.

If you know of a way to do that, feel free to add this.  Since
APR does not have access to any of the new parsing m4 code and
that code doesn't handle this argument anyway, this seemed the
best way.  Feel free to hack at it.  

I was able to fix my problem, but I won't have any time to do
anything much (besides lurk) for a few weeks.  -- justin
