Sorry about that. Trying again - this is my vote:

as I agree with Stefan's arguments:

The only thing which is a bit unfortunate is the currrent naming of the
"--with-included-apr" configure option, IMO. What about changing that to:

  --with-srclib-apr     Use copies of APR/APR-Util in srclib directory

(and slightly adapt the wording introduced in r1232576)
