Well, then status quo is still badness. It's already hit two people
-- a cygwin person and a freebsd person haven't been able to compile.

If we're going to build the glue code as part of the generic 'make'
target, then Subversion's own configure.in needs to look to see if
APR_HAS_THREADS. If not, we shouldn't try to build the glue code.


Should I file an issue for this?
