APR *will* be standalone, but since it is not yet completely stable it
may at random times not be standalone. That may be unsatisfactory for
j-t-c, or maybe that just means that we have to work harder to get
APR to be standalone.

Last time I built APR standalone for use with j-t-c I didn't have a
problem with it (on Solaris 8/sparc and Linux/RH 7.1/x86). We just have
to have docs that capture all the scenarios (which is much harder to do
in scripts).

Maybe I can post some doc updates from my experiences building that beast.
