Like I said: new news to me :-)

I'll tinker with Apache and APRUTIL to fix this. Somebody had added test to
Apache, then I nuked it thinking "woah, we don't build anything in there, so
don't recurse." Then I realized that we wanted to *clean* the test
directories, so I put test back into Apache and added it to APRUTIL :-)

Time to go do it the Right Way. I'll leave a turd in STATUS about this.

I'd call it util/ since it isn't supporting anything :-), but would be okay
with support/ if people leaned in that direction more.
