I am very confused by this.  If the PTF is applied to the machine, then
APR will detect sendfile won't it?  If it isn't applied, then the machine
doesn't have sendfile.  If Apache is compiled, and then the PTF is
applied, then Apache/APR will need to be re-compiled in order to pick it
up.  How is this useful on a Unix machine?
