Some good news here: I dug through the profile data and found that over half
the httpd's calls to apr_pcalloc are from one function, 'find_entry' in the
apr_hash_set implementation.  It uses apr_pcalloc to allocate a struct with
5 fields, and then it immediately overwrites 4 of those fields.  I'll submit
a patch to the APR dev list to fix this.
