Re: configure script fails to locate apr

Alright, I found some problems related to finding APR. The reason the -I
wasn't appearing is that we never told it to :). However, I think you problem
might be something else. You said you have httpd-2.0 in /local/apache2,
however, you --with-apxs says /usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs.
                              ^^^^

One of those two seems to be an inconsistency. I haven't checked in the
yet, but I will soon, just want to work out one more thing first.
