You are going on the assumption that APR only gets what the MPM needs.  We
decided a few weeks ago that this was the wrong approach.  APR gets what
the machine provides, and the MPM decision is based on what APR was
compiled with and what the user specified.  For the prefork MPM, there are
two ways to specify this desire to Apache:

1)  When configuring APR --disable-threads
2)  When configuring Apache --with-mpm=prefork

The first method means there is no extra code in APR for threading.  The
second means APR has threading code but Apache ignores it.
