Ok... this explains a bit, will take it out and see if I get any luck.

Patching our own release seems untidy to me (it's ok if it's a vendor 
release fixing vendor specific issues, but it's our own release).

Is it not possible to add `apr-config --builddir` which gives a path to 
the ./build directory of apr, required by the build of apr-util?

If so, I'll add it to apr in the next day or two.
