Okay, but that's what I'm saying.  We need to add the output from
autoheader and autoconf.  They have been removed recently.  Not having
them in means that we are relying that the person wanting to compile
Apache has autoheader and autoconf.  If we are willing to say that, then
we might as well execute them from Apache's Configure command.  It just
doesn't hold water for me to say that we can't run autoheader/autoconf
because not everybody has them installed, but then not have their output
in CVS.  I would like to know why they were removed, and I would like to
re-examine the decision to remove them.

If we are going to say that APR can be built by building Apache, then I
think it needs to be true, and it should be poissible to run either:


    ./configure  (with opts)

    cd src
    ./Configure (after creating Configuration)

If this is not possible after a fresh extract, then it is not possible to
build APR by building Apache.
