It all actually depends on what version of Apache Runtime libraries  
are being used.
It is possible that the older version of APR which had these things  
is being used
when code is compiled, but that probably have required you to say to  
use the older
version of APR, plus I would have thought newer Apache would have  
required the
newer version to work. Strange???
