Besides being on the wrong list (this is an APR issue not an httpd issue), 
this warning is a false positive as it doesn't occur with later autoconf 
releases.  I expect that this was a bug was 2.13 in that we follow the 
documented AC_TRY_RUN convention and 2.5x does not emit a warning for this 

Note that the docs for autoconf 2.57 say to use AC_RUN_IFELSE instead of 
AC_TRY_RUN because of a design flaw in the AC_TRY_RUN expansion (which leads 
me to believe that the warning is or was a fault in autoconf), but I don't 
think that's an option here since 2.13 doesn't have AC_RUN_IFELSE.  -- justin
