No, it's a conscious decision. If the --with-apr option is not specified, it
will look for a bundled source directory first, then look in the 'normal'
directories for a pre-installed copy.

This is to prevent problems with people compiling new versions of httpd/SVN
with newer bundled apr/apr-util than what they have installed. If we didn't
give precedent to the bundled versions, we'd use the pre-installed versions
which isn't what people want. If you deleted the bundled directory in your
SVN or whatnot, it'd force the use of the installed copy or fail. -- justin
