Ok I found the cause of the problem.

If the path to Apache source has a symlink, the code that generates exports.c
uses both the absolute path (symlink parsed out) and the path with the symlink
during the generation process. The end result is that some files (namely apr
stuff) is included twice into exports.c.

You can replicate this by downloading the source, decompress the source, then
symlink the source "ln -s httpd-2.0.45 httpd", "cd http", "./configure", "make".
The make fill fail and complain about duplicate apr symbols in exports.c. If you
look at exports.c, you'll see all apr-related files have been included using
both the "httpd-2.0.45" and the "httpd" paths.

It's probably just a line or two that needs to be changed to fix this.
