apr-util is out of sync with apr... apr_app is renamed to aprapp.

Whatever the win32 build is updated to, I've learned that apr-util
shouldn't actually build apr for precisely this reason.  Since the
apr-util is slated for destruction (apr 2.0.0 incorporates it),
I hadn't spent much time returning to it.

aprapp is an interesting beast, it was basically an early shortcut
to avoid waiting for apr_initialize to fix the system env table into
a utf-8 representation for _environ which wouldn't lose any of the
wide characters irrespective of code page.  That's back in the day
that MS didn't have a (working) utf-8 code page.
