Because I asked for input on what needed to be done and was told the
only difference was adding apr-iconv and CRLF. It's not like running
autoheader is going to hurt anything. Plus we can always tweak this
stuff later, say add a --zip option to autogen.sh that runs only the
things needed for the Windows build.

But at this point I can produce zip file source packaging. I presumed
there would end up being some tweak as to what was going to go into it.
But then the tarball has been tweaked a lot over time.
