I don't think we can.
I cannot find a function to determine whether a user is a member
of a given a group. APR uses getgrnam_r() internally but doesn't
expose the 'struct group' result it gets from getgrnam_r().

We could add a new function to APR which this patch could then make use of.
But until an APR version with such functionality is released we'll have
to call getgrnam_r() ourselves.
