Hey! All you folks out there who were having build issues - don't worry,
help is at hand.  With *this* release you just have to get *three*
tarballs configured and built correctly together instead of one!  It's
*so* much better for you, can't you tell?  </sarcasm>

and apr-util in tarballs, definitely the right thing to do.
