Which bit, the tricks to use pkg-config?  I think the premise of that 
work (that build env scripts in $bindir should be arch-neutral) is 
dubious and I don't think it's appropriate to have upstream projects 
maintain the fugly hacks necessary to uphold that premise.

There's a better argument that the contents of $includedir should be 
arch-neutral, something that APR fails on also, but a general solution 
for that would be hard too.
