I really do not like "lib|lib64" approaches - but if that is all there is:

Either package with -64 in the package name (and use, e.g, /opt/httpd64 
and /opt/httpd32 as prefixes,
then a "user" can set symbolic links - and - also only build against 
static apr and apr-util libraries.
Then they are not "installed" during run-time, only available on the 
packaging server.

When I get that far I'll let you know (if you are interested).
