Hmm... I download the source from, and it comes with  
APR in the tree.

So far, I can't seem to get a debuggable apr into the build.  It may  
be the fact that ./configure is hell-bent on sticking -L/usr/lib in  
front of -L/usr/local/apr/lib in $LDFLAGS, so it's probably picking up  
the libapr that came with OS X.  I hate to get in and hack the  
Makefile itself, but am leaning that way.  -Tim

At the moment, the language does not contain words sufficient to  
express the depth of my loathing for autotools.  I'll probably get  
over it.  -T
