Yes, sorry i misspoke.  I have been in the habit of thinking the
problem is "no apr release" so long, i keep forgetting the
problem has changed.  They have their own releases now, yes, but
Apache still releases with apr HEAD (more accurately, Apache
still releases with an APACHE_2_0_x tag on apr HEAD).  Note that
what comes with 2.0.44, for example, is newer than 0.9.1.

There has been talk of not holding apr hostage to apache, and
letting it go ahead and break compatability by dropping
deprecated interfaces.  This may leave Apache 2.0.x with its own,
older apr release while 2.1 moves on to use apr 1.0.

Anyway, the point is that the safest bet for now is to go with
the apr that ships with apache.
