I assume that there still is a mechanism corresponding to 
--with-included-apr? On a distro with bundled APR version X that httpd 
dislikes (or more commonly, that contains bugs that has been fixed in 
newer releases that aren't considered a security update for the 
distro) I find it very convenient to be able to install httpd without 
having to jump through hoops pointing out which APR 
devel/runtime-stuff it should use.

So, while APR (and stuff) are indeed dependencies I find 
--build-with-known-good-dependency-stuff very useful.
