Configury, my man!

Find an appropriate place in configure.in, then:

    AC_CHECK_FUNCS(utime, utimes)

That'll get HAVE_UTIME and/or HAVE_UTIMES defined in
include/arch/unix/apr_private.h. Then you just condinitonalize the code
on those defines, giving utimes (which has the more precise interface)
priority; e.g.,

    ...use utimes...
    #elif HAVE_UTIME
    ...use utime...
    return APR_ENOTIMPL:

Not that there's much chance that any Unix wouldn't have at least utime().

I don't think you have to tweak apr.h.in. There's no reason to export
which syscall we're using. You do have to put in dummy implementations
that return APR_ENOTIMPL for OS/2 and Netware, though.
