I just built from scratch using the tarball and the same options
that any typical user would set: i.e.,

   ./configure --prefix=/dist/test22 --enable-modules=all

Zero problems.

I don't understand what you are talking about -- developers don't
run ./buildconf on the source package.  Only we do that.  Even after
I do a

   make extraclean
   ./configure --prefix=/dist/test22 --enable-modules=most

again I have zero problems.  The included versions of apr and apr-util
are used in all of my tests.  I've never installed apr-1.x in the OS
system libraries.  Why would anyone outside this list do that?

Whatever problem you are encountering, please fix it on trunk.

I see no evidence that it will cause people outside the APR core
development group any grief for httpd-2.2, and even then a workaround
can be described on the website.
