I had not heard of Encap but I have been doing a similar thing by hand
and my installation of apr/apu-config have the symlink problem. The
problem appears to be that apr/apu-config do a dir=`cd some_path && pwd`
and then compare $dir. The problem is that in the shell that
apr/apu-config use on my system (Redhat 7.2) pwd is a builtin and
returns the path as typed by the user. It does not resolve symlinks. I
just changed to two references of pwd with /bin/pwd and now I don't have
any problems with the correct directory being used.

I do have the annoying problem of the libtool generated errors if
-pthread is listed a dependency library. Since this is only a problem
after autogen.sh it is not as annoying as it is an easy patch to libtool
to skip -pthread when checking deplib.
