I discussed it with Justin Erenkrantz on IRC, and he posted something
about it to the svn list (in response to my commit of this patch to
the FreeBSD port).  I think he CC'd the apr list with that, but I'm not 
possitive, as I'm not on that list at the moment.

The problem is that top_blddir isn't getting set in the Makefile, due
to some change in the way that the new autoconf does variable
substitution.  The patch I committed to the port fixes the simple
case, but apparently (according to Justin) breaks other things in the
build (builddir != srcdir I believe).
