That config option should be for SVN's configure "make check", not for
the test scripts.

They just get built from source during the Subversion build. Nothing
special there.

You don't have to rebuild httpd every time. Just require a configured
httpd in the right directory. Users can write their configure scripts to
use --with-apr(-util) to point to the versions installed with httpd.

You definitely don't want to rebuild httpd every time you run the tests,
it takes too long, and new httpd versions aren't released all that often.

You could require the user to preconfigure httpd, too; that's a lot easier.

With caution. :-)
