I am using APR 0.9.7 because we are using Trac and therefore need
modpython in Apache which didn't work with httpd 2.2 when the
server was set up. I just looked at APR 1.2.2 from httpd 2.0.55 and
at least the checks for lstat64 are in there. *Sigh* I had hoped
to avoid recompiling the whole environment.

Thanks a lot
