if the projects use the apr files, then you end up with the situation 
that apr-util is in now, where one cannot actually build apr-util 
separately from apr.  even if apr is installed on the system already, 
you actually have to have the apr directory tree sitting next to the 
apr-util directory tree or you can't even run configure.

since apr-util is supposed to be a separate project, this seems like a 
pretty bad situation to me.  it would be one thing if apr installed the 
files on the system, where the build process of the other projects could 
  find and use it, but requiring you to actually have the source tree 
there seems a bit much.
