The Apache license is BSD based, so you shouldn't have any problems.

Yes we have, and this is definately in plan.  The problem recently has
been one of time rather than desire.  I believe most of us would like to
do a release of APR, and we would like to create binary and source
packages, but we just haven't had time.  I personally, am finishing a
major project in the next month, and I hope to become more involved again
as soon as that project is done.  My first hope is to work on the APR
distribution system.

Welcome aboard....
