A missing piece for unix is detecting the presence of utime.h and
setting the utimeh variable.  I think you just need to add utime.h to
the APR_FLAG_HEADERS invocation in configure.in, then add an
AC_SUBST(utimeh) invocation with the rest of them.

If somebody cares they will implement; if not, then it will be missing
until somebody starts caring.  I wonder if a feature test macro is
needed.  Initially we'd need to set APR_HAVE_UTIME_H to 0 in apr.hw
(Win32) and apr.hnw (Netware).

As far as the name apr_utime(): 

  no freakin' way :)  I'd suggest something like apr_file_time_set().

As far as which times to set (atime, ctime, mtime):

  I don't care about ctime either.  I wonder if anybody else cares.

As far as how to specify those times:

  I'd vote for separate parameters instead of stuffing them in a
  structure.  I don't see the benefit to the structure.
