For Q1, you might be running into the bug that was fixed in
version 1.3.9-3 of the libserf-dev Debian package:
    serf (1.3.9-3) unstable; urgency=medium
      * Add libssl-dev to libserf-dev's Depends, otherwise pkg-config can't
        provide information about serf.

Passing an argument to the --with-serf option will bypass pkg-config
and sidestep the bug insofar as configure's detection of libserf is
concerned, but you might want to install libssl-dev anyway if you'd like
to be able to connect to repositories over https://.

For Q2, you might need to install the relevant package:
    % apt-file search bin/apxs
    apache2-dev: /usr/bin/apxs
    apache2-dev: /usr/bin/apxs2

The relevant configure option is --with-apxs, but you will likely not
need to specify it explicitly once the package is installed.

For Q3, an alternative solution is to install libutf8proc-dev.

And if these guesses are correct, then for future reference see
«apt-get build-dep subversion».

Do you already have libsvn*.so files installed on your system? On
Debian derivatives there may be linker errors (at the end of the build)
due to confusion between the installed libsvn*.so and the ones being
