AC_CONFIG_HEADER does. From experience, I believe it would be
possible to use AC_CONFIG_HEADER with apr.h without corrupting the
namespace with autoconf symbols. (Even better would be to make apr.h
not vary per platform and per compiler, but that's asking a lot for a
portability layer.)

If you don't like those enter/exit messages from gnu make, just use
make -S.
