Well, remember: we can change APR as much as we want. If it does things
wrong (e.g. using CFLAGS incorrectly per your other note), then we can fix
it. If we need /some/ of the flags, but not the include flags, then we can
get those split up in APR and export just the necessary piece.
One of APR's goals is to be usable within applications (such as SVN). If the
configuration isn't correct -- if it can't be configured within an app --
then it can/will/must be changed.
And the happy part, of course, is that I have the commit privs to do that.
We just need to figure out the "correct" mechanism. It sounds like we might
be getting somewhat close to a definition of what is really needed.
