Greg and I were chatting about this with Serf (which I recently auto-fu'd). 
We pondered adding some auto-fu macros to find_ap[ru].m4 to help set up the 
environment - something like APR_USE_APR that calls the APR_FIND_APR macro and 
then does all of the 'silly' magic to make auto-fu use the detected 
APR/APR-util.  As is, I agree that there is too much -fu required and there's 
no reason that APR can't m4-ize it somehow.

I'd prefer that such an 'example' bundle be distributed separately from APR, 
but it can be referred to in our release notes and on the website.  At first 
thought, I would probably also prefer that such example code be released in 
the public domain instead of having it under the ALv2 - but could be convinced 
otherwise.  (I'd want zero strings attached to this example bundle; the ALv2 
is essentially unrestricted though...)  -- justin
