    For programs which don't use libtool directly, apr-util could
    add a mechanism to install itself into a temporary directory.
    The directory would contain the final shared and/or static
    libraries.  Otherwise, you rely on an implementation detail
    which can easily change.  For example, on certain platforms,
    libtool uses "_libs" instead of ".libs".

    This could also be used by Apache, if you dislike the
    two-step mechanism.
