I hate to make developer's life difficult but, from
what is known, no Apache Project seems to be carrying
Category B software in their repositories (feel free

something we will have to think about.

I am OK with this, as long as I can use my prepackaged
version by defining it configure (FWIW, I already
updated the FreeBSD package).
