Didn't realize that was dropped...

...if we presume sense and sensibility of the user to install pcre
(and apr project eventually assumes the same w.r.t. expat) and we don't
see a benefit to shipping the [very small] lua sources, then it's really
nothing to assert that apr should never be bundled again.

Otherwise, if we have a -deps package, the prereq packages such as pcre
must be bundled for consistency.

Getting out of the dep-distro business seems like a sensible move.
