we're doing is copy in find_apr.m4, can't we just fork that and allow it to evolve into our
own idea of finding an appropriate APR against which to configure?

The reason we added find_ap{ru}.m4 initially was to prevent exactly this fork.

For example, Subversion shouldn't have to re-create this logic either.
 So, I'd rather keep find_apr.m4 in apr - especially given all of the
other source dependencies in buildconf.  My itch-scratching doesn't
move me to want to replace buildconf at this time.  -- justin
