The dependency goes the other way: APRUTIL depends upon APR. APR will know
nothing about APRUTIL.

Now... your statement could be applied to APRUTIL: if APRUTIL finds APR
unpacked inside it, then it would do the right magic.
[ much like SVN does sub-config on APR and Neon which are unpacked inside of
  its directory (altho the SVN case requires the subpackages) ]

It also seems feasible to create a "super package" of APR and APRUTIL. I
would even presume that if somebody builds an APR RPM, they would include
both libraries in it.
