apr trunk on Unix:

It gets built then run only after all .o files are generated, so it doesn't have the expected impact.

.o/.lo/.libs (for gen_test_char) in tools don't get cleaned, so you may just see the link invocation when you think you're building from scratch.

(I see something else with the apr-1.5.x branch build on MinGW, but I'll worry about that.)
