The only way to avoid the RPATH (in general) is to link APR/APR-util 
statically; which can only be achieved by not building the shared 
libraries.  So passing --disable-shared to configure may work, though 
this is not a configuration that gets any testing at all AFAIK, so it 
may not work but bug reports are welcome.

Having libtool use $ORIGIN-relative RPATHs would certainly be a neat 
hack for platforms which support that; patches would have to go to the 
libtool team ;)

Alternatively, you can get tools which munge ELF binaries post-build - 
"chrpath" is the commonly used one IIRC.
