Major problem; don't do this.  You are putting 1.4.x code into a release
which then ends up causing APR 1.4.0 to break its binary ABI rules.  That
is just not kosher.  Some README or release notes observing that the best
results can be obtained with a checkout and build of the as-yet-unreleased
apr 1.4.x trunk is sufficient.

If you want to 'test the bundling' - use a released apr please?

Agreed +1 if APR is not bundled (this is alpha, after all).
