Many distributions seem to name stuff differently. For instance, on SuSE 10,
the apxs executable is /usr/sbin/apxs2. You might want to point configure to
the correct place (--with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs2).

When building for SuSE, I use the following configure line:
./configure --with-neon=/usr --with-zlib --with-swig \
  --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs2 --with-apr=/usr/bin/apr-config \
  --with-apr-util=/usr/bin/apu-config --with-ssl --disable-mod-activation \
  --with-jdk=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0 --enable-javahl \
