Well, that is HOSED as it doesn't contain any "-bundle" stuff to create
libraries under Darwin... It simply doesn't work under Mac OS X.

It recreates srclib/apr/build/libtool.m4 (DOH!) :-)

Seriously speaking, the   glibtool distributed with Darwin is _again_ hosed
(I don't know what to do next, I'm going to hang myself to some loose rope
hanging around here), how many times do I have to send patches to _world_
about it????

Ok, anyhow, I patched my local copy (again and again and again), rerun
./buildconf, and everything works like a charm...

Of course I don't use Fink (because it sucks badly), I just rely on the
"standard" Mac OS X installation, so, I get whatever apple gives me (bugs
included)... Now, this is the patch I had to make against my live system to
make it work:

   [foobared mailer, see attachment, which _of course_ will be encoded in
    friggin' base 64, don't complain, I know, but I paid several hundred $$$
    for Office X and now I better use it]

I see two options, either I come up (again) with my own LibTool package and
put it up on Apache.ORG (the copy I had was moved off to another server and
that server DIED, thanks J.F.Clere for noticing), or we distribute another
copy of the source files (only for MacOS/X) for 2.0.43 (after I've applied
the patch, and re-buildconf-ed)...

For 2.0.43 the latter seems the best option (I'm going to do that on, for the future, it's probably better to have the
glibtool-patched-package ready, and also make sure that the glibtool we use
doesn't suffer from such bugs)....

AAAAAHHHHH I hate this world :-(
