Not true. I always --enable-threads when I build httpd/apr/apu. And
I've never had a problem, the swig-py bindings have always worked fine
for me on FreeBSD.

The problem here is that Joe Newbie should be able unpack an svn
release tarball, run "./configure; make", and have it Just Work. He
shouldn't have to know to pass --enable-threads to apr, or pass
--without-swig. We should do the right thing by default: either
don't build swig bindings by default, or build them *only* if threads
are detected.
