Agreed that's the fix, and there has been chatter about putting out
1.5.1 one of these days.  I don't think this is enough to warrant
dumping the release, but I was afraid something odd might happen by
picking up 1.5.0 over 1.4.8.  That said - I think 1.5.0 was still the
right call for the time being.

Anyone doing out of tree builds aught to be able to read the output
of make >build.log 2>&1, and work that out.  And most who build out
of tree I expect also build apr, apr-util individually.

The casual user who would be bit by this bug is undoubtedly grabbing
the tarball and just building the entire stack in-tree, so I'm not
worried to much.
