I think this is a reasonably big deal.  I tried a quick "autoreconf
-ivf" which failed because the APR_FIND_APR macro was not distributed
with lib4cxx and find_apr.m4 isn't installed in /usr/pkg/share/aclocal
as part of NetBSD's apr package.

Using ant isn't even an option for systems where Java is not available.

I'll see what I can do to jump this hurdle so I can report whether
there are any other problems beyond configure.
