I was rather pointing out that you were relying on "installing" APR.
I don't think we've ever actually tried installing APR standalone
because the main driving force is httpd-2.0, which relies on APR being
in source form.  =)

We could certainly get it to work better after an "install," but at
least from the httpd-2.0 side, we haven't focused on that too much.

Any hints here would be appreciated.  When I built mod_webapp, I hacked
the Makefiles to use my local source copy of APR.  I also managed to
build a static mod_webapp.  Very useful for debugging.  Once you've
cleaned the build up for mod_webapp, I can try finagling a patch to
submit that will allow mod_webapp to be compiled into one .a file that
can then be thrown into Apache.  

I'll also prolly write an apache-2.0 module for webapp based on what
you have.  (mod_webapp really deserves to run under httpd-2.0 because 
of the APR usage.)  However, I'm going to be sidetracked by the APR
pools for a little bit (see my recent dev@apr posts).  -- justin
