Looks great so far!  I haven't tried running it yet, but I'm wondering
about the apxs dependence in the patch.  Doesn't apxs depend on mod_so
being installed?  Does the preinstalled httpd need to have a working apxs?  
If not, where should/does wind up after installation?

Also, since we can get the apache srcdir from `apxs -q abs_srcdir`, if
we're going to require a working apxs, maybe we should just do something
with "--with-apache2-apxs=... --disable-shared" instead of adding
another configure option (and distinguish between shared/static libapreq
and shared/static mod_apreq).

Another possibility is to do something clever with httpd's 
--with-module=... option, but I'm not smart enough to get a full
compile out of it.  Maybe a small step in this direction would 
be to move httpd-apreq-2/src/* over to httpd-2.0/srclib/apreq
and figure out how to get *that* to compile libapreq.

If I'm jumping the gun by asking such questions before trying the
patch, just holler.
