Be aware that there is a one line change to most applications who want
apr-1.3.x to provide that binding for them (so they can use the symbols
privately).  Simply, this would just no longer be the default.  I think
that's a healthy thing since this affects < 10% of applications that
consume apr-util, and of the others, they would be better off linking
ldap only for specific components, e.g. mod_ldap/mod_authnz_ldap.
