Hi, not a voter here, but a mod_perl committer, and I've seen this above issue before several
times particulary on 
freebsd when for instance you install the subversion port.  If you then compile svn versions
of apr, apache 2.x, and mp2 
by hand, httpd ends up linking to the apr installed by the subversion port in /usr/local not
the one you said in 
--with-apr. et. al.

I will likely be able to generate a step by step tomorrow.
