By "traditional" I meant non-cmake et al., so it applies to gnu make as
well (which I use on all platforms).

Out of tree won't work for make because the rule to create
include/private/apr_escape_test_char.h would try to write it into the
non existing directory include/private (only exists in source, but not
in new build dir). So an mkdir is needed. Furthermore the
include/private directory in the build dir wasn't in the include path.

Personally I think people doing out of tree builds are a minority and
can cope with a small Makefile patch. Theyshould be OK with it already
being fixed for the next release, so for me it wouldn't be a reason to
vote -1.
