Now you know why we needed to go through the mechanics of a
release.  =)

The fix, of course, is to extract stuff to apr and apr-util
(no version numbers and in parallel).

It has to do with autoconf hardcoding the apr path in configure
via AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR(../apr/build) in configure.in.

What we may need to do is to create an apr-build module that
allows us to store the config.guess/config.sub/install.sh/mkdir.sh
files that we can force all projects to check out locally rather
than having their own local (potentially stale) copy.

Thoughts?  But, somehow APR-util needs its own local copy of these
files, but I'd rather see us consolidate them somehow.  -- justin
