Hmmm. Yeah, I guess it makes sense. I'll put that back. It's probably
better to remove all sorts of other stuff, like config.log.

Actuallly, --enable-maintainer-mode ought to take care of a lot of
this for us, in theory. Haven't checked if it actually does, though.

Well, now, all you should have to do in theory is (thanks to your

cd src
./configure --flags
cd lib/apr
cd ../..

It works for me on Linux. Unfortunately, I haven't tested on any other
platforms yet; I'm just trying to get it to work on a single platform
first. RSN, I should have a BSD box up and running.

I think a bunch of libraries are built and then combined together,
sort of like Apache combines a bunch of libraries together in its
build process. I haven't checked out APR's build process too
carefully, though.
