Not sure. In the current set of tarballs, we've got sqlite, serf, apr,
apr-util, neon, zlib, and possibly apr-iconv (in the zips). In the pre-1.4
days, we actually included the current deps in the shipping Subversion
tarballs, but it might have been just apr, apr-util and neon at that point.

That's fine. I'm just looking to consolidate our artifacts in one location
as part of the asymptotic move away from tigris.
