What's significant about ../apr though?  It's outside our build tree, so
shouldn't be in the list of 'default paths'.


./buildconf --with-apr=../apr

solve your problems?  We can certainly expand the arg to a full path, if
that's an issue, and also we really should set up ./configure so that
you don't have to re-declare --with-apr all over again after providing
that to buildconf.

I'd offer another comprimize, though, if you want to treat the httpd's
parent directory as 'srclib'.  What about --with-srclib=..   ?
