This is one of the arguments for not including specific versions of
dependent libraries in the tarball, I think... people read too much
into it. For example, we've been including apr and apr-util 0.9.x in
our release tarballs for years, but Subversion works just fine
against apr 1.0 or 1.1!

This means that INSTALL (and our build scripts) become the only
source of "recommended" dependent library versions.
