No need for current thanks, that was fixed long a go, but needs a new 
apr release to become effective.

No, apr and apr-util both were external but not in any default system path.

We add apu-1-confg --includes to CPPFLAGS and then use CPP and 
apu_version.h to detect which version we have. That works for most gcc 
versions, but recent gcc chokes, because apu_version.h includes 
apr_version.h, which can not be found due to our setting of CPPFLAGS. 
gcc 4.6.2 based cpp then aborts parsing apu_version.h and our version 
check fails.

Adding apu-1-confg --includes *plus* apr-1-confg --includes to CPPFLAGS 
before the version check fixes this.
