The instant I read this, I realized my shell likely had LD_LIBRARY_PATH set. 
Sure enough, it was.  And, it was pointing to a path that had a 1.3.8 APR 
shared library.  After unsetting LD_LIBRARY_PATH, `testall` found the proper 
1.3.12 library and passed the aforementioned poll tests.

I suppose testall could be compiled to reference libapr-1.so.x.y.z instead 
of libapr-1.so to minimize the possibility of this.  But, a bad environment 
is a bad environment.

Sorry for the fire drill.  I'll try not to be so careless next time.
