I'm not very happy with the integrated APR build in JK2 for Apache
1.3. I did much of the work there and if I had to do it again, I'd
prefer APR to be a build/runtime depend, built separately by the
user first and loaded with LoadFile directive.

With respect to JK, I'd rather not see it get APR'ized. Mostly
so that Apache 1.3 support is kept simple and straightforward.
