the tarball does just work. it just doesn't work with the latest
release of apache2, and the apr that comes with it, which came out
after our tarball did. we can hardly be held responsible for that
;-) if you build with just what came in the tarball, it will work
fine (of course you can't build a server that way, but this is a
pre-alpha project, that's the price you pay for being an early adopter).
