This is why I really liked your apr-build project idea, so that we
could get all those useful .m4 files out into their own project to be
installed on any system that might need it. I have multiple projects
that right now do something lame like check apr_common.m4 into their
codebase so they can use the funtions in there, but it would be really
handy to just search for those in some standard locations the same way
we search for include files (for example).
