I would think that in the case of a mainline package, the final 
installation path would be predictable (at least if it's something like 
a Linux distribution or something like that) so the apr-util-1 directory 
would be the same as what it was configured/built for.

Yeah, I think given the targeted use we bundle apache for the 
"workaround" of using --disable-util-dso is really the solution for the 
problem for us.

Thanks for the info and help,
