of course, it can't be that simple ;-)

once i do that, apr configures just fine, but apr-util bombs out with a 
syntax error in the configure script:

[rooneg@quicksilver:~/apr/apr-util-0.9.1 ] ./configure
./configure: line 1278: syntax error near unexpected token 
./configure: line 1278: `APR_CONFIG_NICE(config.nice)'
[rooneg@quicksilver:~/apr/apr-util-0.9.1 ]

yeah, i figured it was something like that, since it was the only place 
i could find that path hardcoded.

a separate apr-build project certainly seems like the best solution to 
me.  i'd love to see it possible to build apr-util separate from apr 
(meaning apr is already installed on the system, as opposed to the 
current state of afairs where you pretty much have to build them both 
at the same time).
