Point made, but the USER will NEVER do this.  They will not invoke
buildconf.  It's not unreasonable to expect svn based developers to
do provision this.  A lot easier than a whole toolchain.

I think maybe you are raising an httpd issue, then, so perhaps
that's not on topic for this list?

Because apr does not and never did depend on apr-util.  apr-util
depends on apr.  And we won't be shipping apr-util anymore at 2.0
anyways.  So perhaps that's the end of that discussion?
