Thanks; we probably need to backout the most recent changes I made to 
MANIFEST then (I commented out a few lines to shut perl up about missing
files).  Also some of the README text I added regarding a C build probably
should be elided as well.

I just tried to build a copy of libapreq-0.33 I downloaded from CPAN,

  % ./configure
  % make
  cd . && aclocal
  cd . && automake --foreign Makefile
  automake: required file `./missing' not found
  make: *** [] Error 1

There's a symlink from ./missing to /usr/local/share/automake/missing in 
apreq's main directory, but there is no such file on my system (a RH Linux
derivative).  Relinking it to /usr/share/automake/missing (which is
where RH installed it) seems to work as expected.  Is there an easy fix
for this, or should we document the potential problem instead?

I haven't tested the resulting libraries at all- just the build
