Your welcome, glad I could help.

Yup - I observe the same under Sol's /bin/sh - 'no apr-1-config found in $PATH'

Find the path of apr-1-config; but in this case $? didn't reflect failure of
the `which apr-1-config`, either /bin/sh doesn't propogate `cmd` failure codes
or solaris' `which` command doesn't provide one.  Anyways...

Uhm dude, it's buildconf, not configure :)  You amoung others argued why we
can do all sorts of screwball stuff in buildconf cause 'it's only run here' and
end users don't need it :)

We have always harvested some files from the aprsrc to buildconf aprutilsrc.
Nothing new here.

Ewww?  Annotate your repulsion in a bit more technical terms, please :)

This turns ../apr into usable path when symlinks are used.  Not only is
this an issue for devs who have symlinked httpd-n.n/srclib/apr/ to apr-n.n/
(we all know svn's incapable of svn status'ing down into srclib/...) but
also should help those users who have reported failures due to the fact
that on some platforms /home/joe/build isn't really there.
