You can certainly do this; it reverts to apr-1.2 behavior.

Sadly, mainline packages are exactly what the dso option was added for.
When building httpd for the mass consumer, it's not possible to predict
which of 6 sql, 4 db and ldap modules they will actually use.  The combined
footprint of these at runtime is asinine.  Of course; this is no different
that a typical monolithic php build, and loading both, apr-util dso will
save you little except for a few additional relocs since these libs were
already slurped in ;-)
