I don't see that here (and it would only be in apr-utils, AFAICT). Have you
already exported a value for $LDFLAGS?

Neither of those contains anything with relation to Berkeley on my system:

$ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apu-config --link-libtool --libs
  /usr/local/apache2/lib/libaprutil-0.la -lgdbm -ldb -lexpat

jpeacock@ranger1 ~/working/svn-1.0
$ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apu-config --link-ld --libs
  -L/usr/local/apache2/lib -laprutil-0 -lgdbm -ldb -lexpat

However, at least on my machines, this does

$ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apu-config --ldflags

Again, do you have an already existing $LDFLAGS in your environment?

I assume you mean apr/apr-util there, and yes, it does (for me with several
platforms for a while now).

AFAIK, the newer APR is only required if you _don't_ rely on Apache's apxs to
specify the BDB version to use.
