Ok, this helped. APR from SVN now gives me a clean configure when I do

C:\Users\zdavatz\software\apr>sh buildconf

Nice! Once again thanks for the hint! This should go into the
documentation somewhere. Please let me know where I can update the
documentation for the next Greenhorn-Zeno around the corner. I guess
this will be the Apache-Wiki.

I would also add some steps howto install MinGW and run "mingw-get
install *package*" or "mingw-get update"
