It looks like build.conf was the magic file to check. See r24859 from
May 2007. After 1.4.

I am not against the change, but I think we need to beef up our
documentation on how to build APR-Util properly so we can use it with
BDB. We also never followed through on this thread that let to this
change:

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2007-04/0091.shtml

Specifically, the plan was to provide a complete set of pre-built
dependencies and the build system would be able to use them. This
partial change appears to have made things worse.
