Following the instructions in INSTALL, there isn't a need to use the
--with-apr and --with-apr-util switches. (Kevin also mentioned this)

Ah. Looks like we don't have enough tests in our configure script. It
appears you have Python installed, but not a python development package.
You're missing the headers (and probably the .a lib and stuff).

Install a python-devel package to build the swig stuff. If you aren't
interested in building the swig stuff, then something will need to be done
to the configure(.in) script to disable the attempt to build the swig stuff.
There are a couple options: 1) add a --disable-swig (which we also want for
other reasons), and 2) improve configure.in to also check for Python
headers' existence.
