configure of svn 1.6.0-rc2 gives misleading "APRUTIL" disgnostic

$ ./configure
configure: Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library configuration
checking for APR... yes
checking APR version... 1.2.12
configure: Apache Portable Runtime Utility (APRUTIL) library
checking for APR-util... no
configure: WARNING: APRUTIL not found
The Apache Portable Runtime Utility (APRUTIL) library cannot be found.
Either install APRUTIL on this system and supply the appropriate
--with-apr-util option


get it with SVN and put it in a subdirectory of this source:

   svn co \
    http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/apr/apr-util/branches/1.2.x \

Run that right here in the top level of the Subversion tree.
Afterwards, run apr-util/buildconf in that subdirectory and
then run configure again here.

configure: error: no suitable APRUTIL found

  however, on this fedora 9 system, it's not apr-util that it's
looking for, it's actually apr-util-devel, which could cost folks a
few minutes wondering why they have apr-util installed and they're
still getting that error msg.

  perhaps a slightly more precise diagnostic msg might be in order.
