Thanks for the patch, but unfortunately, it has some flaws:

1) It doesn't update configure.in / Makefile.in to name apr-config
apr-MAJOR-config in the build directory.

2) It assumes bundled apr will be apr-1. We want to make find_apr.m4
independent of apr version, so that in the future, it could be installed
into a system aclocal directory (thanks to noahmcit on #apr for pointing
this out).

3) It only implements "accept apr-0 or apr-1", but unless projects do extra
compatibility work, and make sure to *never* expose the apr ABI in their own
ABI, they will want "accept apr-0 only" or "accept apr-1 only".

I'll be writing up an implementation proposal for a set of changes
addressing this, and posting it to this list shortly.
