We now support ASF packaging files (starting with RPM derivatives and 
Solaris PKG) for separate installs of both APR and httpd, the end goal 
being that if we lead the way with how httpd and APR should be packaged, 
distro maintainers will (hopefully) follow. Redhat/Fedora (and others) 
already supports separate installs, and I am on the case for getting 
Sunfreeware to support system packages for APR. Hopefully this will 
build enough incentive for getting other platforms to ship the packages 
this way too.
