They are. The problem is that LIBS uses this syntax:


which works in make, but /bin/sh won't understand it at all and
/bin/bash will treat it as a shell expansion. And of course make doesn't
understand sh's syntax. So it was either expand it in configure (which I
don't see any disadvantage to - abs_srcdir is only changed at
configure-time anyway) or do some silly sed thing in svn-config.

Okay, didn't realize libtool was that smart.

This makes sense after your comments about libtool. I thought the name
was deceptive because SVN_APRUTIL_LIBS was also necessary for export,
but it is not.
