The "sufficient version" test is currently only used if the 
sub-configure of ap[ru] is *not* invoked - when $apr_found is "yes", not 

"--with-apr=srclib/apr" actually treats the bundled sources like any 
"external" copy of APR, so must be already-configured at the time the 
httpd configure is run, AFAIK.  If that's not happened, the apX-N-config 
file would not be found, so configure should fail earlier.

What's really needed here is a "--with-included-apr"-type flag which 
forces use of the bundled sources over installed versions, rather than 
trying to overload --with-apr to do that.
