probably, I would assume so, I haven't ran it down that far yet.

httpd is a bunch of projects run in a certain order, gen_test_char is 
just one of the many projects as is apr. apr is just a single project, 
to build it's gen_test_char is another project that would need to be 
added to the httpd build, or so was my 1 dimensional thinking at the 
time. I've since realized it can be done w/o being a separate project. 
So false alarm, my bad, sorry.
