Putting something into ac-helpers would just delay the proper fix. Nobody
would be motivated to fix it :-) So, I'd be against even temporary fixes.

I've always built in the source directory, so I don't know what the
requirements are for building outside. I'm hoping that Mo can fix up that
macro in apr_common.m4, rather than use workarounds.
