How about just displaying a warning message at the end of the
configure output, like you already do when there isn't a local
copy of Berkeley DB installed?

That way, if someone configured with --with-apache and didn't
realize that they really wanted --with-apxs, they'll see something

     Warning: You used --with-apache, which is normally only used
              for statically compiling Subversion into Apache.

              Use the --with-apxs option to build a dynamically
              loadable Apache module.
