Using the same autoconf and libtool as a well supported vendor takes zero minutes, takes advantage
of bug and security fixes provided by that vendor, and completely eliminates the risk that
some manual thing I did messes up the release.

People build APR using their vendor supplied compilers and tools which will change as issues
are found and fixed. Freezing the versions of autoconf and libtool to an arbitrary version
makes no sense to me.
