I don't understand what problem you are trying to solve. The apache 
port should not need any different build params or dependency lists 
depending on which dbd backends are available. Having a dependency on 
the apr-util port and calling apu-1-config should be enough. Or do you 
have to list all of apr-util's dependencies in the apache port, too?
