They were not vendor-installed, I did it myself.  I've never had any
trouble with them except for PHP.  Anyway, I don't know that this
problem would affect any other project using the following versions of
autoconf, automake, and libtool... I think it's a bug in PHP (probably in
the configure script where main/internal_functions.c is supposed to get
generated).  So sorry in advance for the PHP-esque message on the APR
list, but just in case anyone's interested:

root@deepthought:/root/apache/php4# ./buildconf
buildconf: checking installation...
buildconf: autoconf version 2.50 (ok)
buildconf: automake version 1.4-p4 (ok)
buildconf: libtool version 1.4 (ok)

root@deepthought:/root/apache/php4# cat config.nice
#! /bin/sh

main/internal_functions.c was never generated.  Now at least it would get
built by the Makefile if it *did* exist, which is more than used to
