The problem is that if a developer is using this setup and was relying
upon autogen.sh to update APR and APR-util's configure, those
configure's will not be updated any more without any notice; they'll
just be using the 'old' configure - without any realization that the
configure script isn't being updated. Oops.

Because it was the default, I'd prefer it to be flipped: have a
non-recursive option, but maintain the previous default. That's
mainly because I don't want to break any setups that were relying on
this behavior per above. -- justin
