It's a most bizarre and quirky buildsystem that I've never seen any
other package use.

I guess that's just SourceForge sucking. Worthy of note here is that
you've got an ABI transition to deal with going from 1.95.x to 2.x, i.e.
libexpat0 to libexpat1. (Assuming I remember rightly from when I dabbled
with this).

All my packages are generic-build-script based.

I *think* that the base g-b-s version for each should be as follows:
apache2, apr1, aprutil1, subversion: CVS r1.47
others: CVS r1.38
