Not only share them -- we wanted to avoid running them 5 times for each
build of httpd.  We only need to run them once and share the results.

Or we could change buildconf back to the procedure of copying all of
the m4 files into one local include file and only including that one file
within configure.in.  I changed that because it interfered with bug fixing,
but that's life.

We would still need to install the build files with apr and we should have
a parameter on buildconf that tells it which apr to pick up.

I do not think it belongs in a separate apr-build repository.
