APR and APR-util are mandatory, not optional (even for non-mod_dav_svn
builds: they're a portability layer, not anything to do with the apache
httpd per se), and they don't accept 'yes' and 'no' options either.
('./configure --without-apr' is the same as './configure --with-apr=no',
which is why you're getting the rather odd message above.)

If this ever worked before, it was a bug (and it would have been picking
up the system APR libraries regardless).

By the way, most of those configure options are either irrelevant, or
the default anyway. You could probably remove almost all of them.

Malcolm
