I've been playing around with a platforms.m4 include file that
using config.guess to grok the OS type, and do things like set CC/LIBS/
etc... was we currently do with 1.3.x. The rub is that we're looking
at at least 3 such beasties (for Apache, APR and MM), and IMO it's ugly
to have to adjust 3 seperate files when tuning one platform. Sooo
I'm thinking about simply exporting them, but that's not going to work
totally as well I'm thinking.

One thing I'd like is for APR's configure to have a '--with-apache'
tag, that allows it to use Apache's header files and .m4 files when
it makes sense. Ideas? Comments?
