Actually in older releases we had a force flag somewhere in buildconf 
which would overwrite the config.* in apr when releasing apr and then 
apr-util would pull in those overwritten ones from apr.

Over the last one or two years I hope we managed to remoive the force 
everywhere, so config.* in apr svn should be the definite version.

Definitely good to double-check and not to buildconf against some old 
apr source.
