I'm really not at that stage yet.  I am really just looking to get
comfortable with autoconf right now.  I am more using php and mm as a
reference while reading the info pages.  Unless we are going to thoroughly
tie apr and apache together, I don't think what Apache needs is an issue.
Apache can always just call APR's ./configure to configure APR.  I do not
want to add more to APR's autoconf than is needed right now.  If APR needs
the libtool/automake stuff later, than it can be redone.
