a) Any code we ship is "official" Apache code. We don't support or
guarnatee *any* of our code. That warning seems harsh.

b) I'd much perfer that the default be to use regex/libregex.a, with
wording such as "If your system has a working regular expression library,
we reccomend you comment out the line below."

These aren't really Apache defines. They're system defines. If you're
going to add these, you much at well add:

NULL: Location of the null pointer.

and so forth and so on. It's not something that we set in conf.h, or
something an autoconf would set.
