Well, yes and no :-)

In theory, it should be fairly easy to switch to an alternate APR version,
but I'm not sure exactly what steps you need to follow having started
with a release tarball. Possibly replace the 'apr' and 'apr-util'
directories and re-run autogen.sh, though I can't promise that will work.

I don't know which distributions are shipping glibc 2.4 nowdays - perhaps
we should be distributing a later version of APR in the source tarballs?
