First of all, are these options to svn's configure or to serf's

In either case, I don't understand why they would be required. apr* are
mandatory dependencies, and the --with-apr argument should only serve to
tell configure where the APR installation it should use use, i.e., to
skip looking for apr in the standard locations (/usr, /usr/local, etc).
Can you explain?

If configure won't enable serf unless --with-apr is given on the
commandline (as opposed to "unless it finds a libapr to link against"),
I would call that a configure bug.
