The additional `$apr_config --libs` seems fine to fix the issue during
configure itself.

Saving INCLUDES and LDFLAGS break the build. Without saving, entries are
added to EXTRA_INCLUDES and EXTRA_LDFLAGS in build/ Those
entries are needed to build ab and mod_ssl and to link them.

For the linking issue one could instead of adding the SSL-specifix -L...
to EXTRA_LDFLAGS add them to ab_LDADD and to MOD_SSL_LDADD: it seems not
to be needed for anything else. Since both of those vars include
SSL_LIBS, it could also go in there.

The include flag is harder, since at the moment the build system does ot
include a component specific include variable (like ab_INCADD or

So now we know, why INCLUDES and LDFLAGS where not saved in configure ;)

I'll test once more without the save-related parts of the patch and let
you know.
