It's good that we have people around that know their respective OSes :)

I'll work on that. Can anyone else think of additional caveats that are
similar for other OSes ?

Also, should I add a "-D APR_HAS_LARGEFILES" flag to the APR features
listing? I think that would be useful on at least an informational basis.
A admin/developer might want largefiles for his/her app, but not think or
know to 'nm libapr.so | grep 64$' to find out if it's ragu.
