The makefile you are using is a special one Stefan made for his own needs. That is not the official way to build the software. Just ignore that file and follow the INSTALL docs.

It is not that the script cannot work, but you would not typically want to build the dependencies. Normally you want to use the httpd, APR, OpenSSL, zlib etc. from the CentOS distro. That is what a normal configure and make will do.
