Two problematic ones left in the tarball:

[monalisa:~/projects/httpd-2_0_23] sctemme% find . -name config.guess -print
-exec sh {} \;
[monalisa:~/projects/httpd-2_0_23] sctemme%

However, only the expat one causes trouble, and if I replace only that one
with the download from the FSF, configure completes. PCRE, which has the
other old config.guess, doesn't seem to use it:

Configuring PCRE regular expression library ...

Forward to a fresh checkout of apr-util: there is no config.guess in its
conftools directory. Instead, it is pulled in by the script
which runs libtoolize:

[monalisa:apr-util/xml/expat] sctemme% pwd
[monalisa:apr-util/xml/expat] sctemme% glibtoolize --force --copy --dry-run
You should add the contents of `/usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4' to
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `conftools'.
rm -f config.guess
cp -f /usr/share/libtool/config.guess config.guess
rm -f config.sub
cp -f /usr/share/libtool/config.sub config.sub
rm -f ltconfig
cp -f /usr/share/libtool/ltconfig ltconfig
rm -f
cp -f /usr/share/libtool/
[monalisa:apr-util/xml/expat] sctemme%

... so that's where all those come from.

How is expat pulled into the tarball? Is it checked out from CVS (in which
case it has to be massaged into tarrable shape) or is a distribution used
with whatever material is in there?

Should I send this to another mailinglist like one for APR?
