The issue is with the way autoconf 2.53 does it's variable
substitution. it's apparently different than 2.52 (or whatever the
last version of autoconf in the ports tree was), and breaks apr's
'make install' as a result. This patch fixes it for some things, but
not for everything, which is why the patch hasn't been committed tO

And yes, if anyone wants to find the autoconf developers and hit them
over the head a few times with a big 'you will remain backwards
compatable' stick, I'd be in favor of it.
