Given that apr+apr-util will be a single library with version 2.0,
it might not make sense to split it.  What does make sense to split
off is whether you want to ship the various apr_{feature}-1.so files
so that they keep a dependency on the libraries they bind to.  E.g.
apr_ldap-1.so should only be installed when openldap (or your ldap
provider) is also installed, but there is no reason to demand that
openldap is unconditionally installed whenever apr is desired.
