Your HEAD probably uses the glibtool(ize) installation on your local box,
which on 10.2 by default is 1.4.2. The tarball was built using the FreeBSD
libtool, which is 1.3.4. This version did not know about Darwin yet and will
not create any sort of shared library on this platform. The solution is
building the tarball with a more recent version of libtool.

Maybe Apache should fail more conclusively if the user wants .so modules and
the build system can't do them, but that's a different question from getting
the functionality to work.

I think the ASF roll environment should bump its libtool. I doubt Darwin is
the only platform that would benefit from that.
