I wasn't saying this was a workaround for binary packagers -- clearly
it's not, no one should ship such a build, except to a carefully
controlled environment where they know what they're doing and why.

But if I build from source, or can build from source, and my APR
dependencies are (say) just Apache and Subversion, that's well within
the realm of rebuildability.
