Just as with httpd 2.4.x, use apr 1.x and apr-util 1.x with httpd trunk.

Heck, its even easier if the changes are limited to mod_auth_form.c:

Download mod_auth_form.c from trunk (or check out httpd trunk).
/path/to/24-install/bin/apxs -c mod_auth_form.c.

apr trunk includes APR-util, and I guess that certain httpd builds are
not prepared for that.
