I disagree. You can't have it both ways. If flood, an application that
depends on an already-installed version of APR, requires some autoconf
macros provided by APR then those macros must be installed by APR.

I don't want to require that either, which is why I'm saying we should
be picking it up from an APR install. HTTPD uses those macros, so as
soon as APR becomes a standalone library httpd will need a way to get
the apr_common.m4 file also.
