I don't think that's not enough. The libdirs must be on the
system search path (i.e. listed in /etc/ld.so.conf on Linux) or
listed in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

But I'm not entirely sure I understand these things correctly, so
I reverted and updated in a new working copy and tried again,
this time using the --prefix option. Same error:

OSError: apr-1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

But, you keep referring to your patch, which I do not see. Is
your patch committed, so updating is sufficient?

Yes, apr-*-config scripts provide enough information for autogen
to work without any options at all, and my patch was mainly about
getting that information, while also allowing users to specify
libdirs by hand. Also, I fixed the error reporting.
