Ahh I see.  So your thoughts are to fix the bindist relocation problem, 
having apr-util look in all the shlibpath dirs to find apr-util-1/* 
would be the solution.

And envvar would really only be necessary if for some reason the shlib 
dir was one not specified via one of the platform's env variables.

I did file the following bug:
against apache since the problem is the bindist stuff isn't handling 
this.  If you're plan is for apr-util to fix it, I can redirect the bug 
to APR.  However, do you have an idea of if you're thinking longer term 
(at least a few releases out) or shorter term workaround in envvars (or 
something like that) and then fixing apr-util longer term?  If it's the 
former I think we can handle the workaround in our apache builds and 
just watch out for the longer term fix.
