Here is the apr-util part of that. (apr-iconv part will follow later)

In addition to applying the equivalent changes from apr to apr-util, this
patch also brings across some forgotten comment updates and OS/2 compat code
from apr.

In particular, please could people look at the two "dnl Note: " paragraphs
in find_apu.m4 which this patch does _not_ touch. Copied here:

dnl Note: At this time, we cannot find *both* a source dir and a build dir.
dnl       If both are available, the build directory should be passed to
dnl       the --with-apr-util switch.

The fact that you can pass a build directory to the --with-apr(-util)
options seems to be one of those occasionally useful but not very tested
features. Perhaps we don't want to advertise it (yet?).

dnl Note: the installation layout is presumed to follow the standard
dnl       PREFIX/lib and PREFIX/include pattern. If the APU config file
dnl       is available (and can be found), then non-standard layouts are
dnl       possible, since it will be described in the config file.

Is plain wrong, I think. The macro *requires* that a config file be found.
