In all three cases (apr, apr-utils, sqlite3), the source tree
installation is what I did, following the instructions in the

Those instructions are, by the way, wrong on one small but crucial
point. They say to get the sqlite amalgamation zip and unpack it, but
then that the sqlite3.c file from it should be moved to an
'amalgamation' directory - which doesn't exist, so that attempt wukk
fail. What they should say is "Change the name of the root directory
of the unpacked amalgamation tree to 'amalgamation'."

The failure I got looks as through the build system is trying to set a
relative path for an instance of libtool, but due to some quantum
fluctuation deep in the fetid bowels of autotools whatever make variable
is before the slash has an empty value.
