First remember that APU 1.4 hasn't been released yet. You might use it 
for testing and development, but think twice before using it for production.

There is no download available. You have to checkout using subversion.

To build you will need a slightly extended toolchain including m4, 
autoconf and automake on your system.

Build steps:

1) Checkout APU from subversion

svn checkout

2) Provide APR sources

Download and extract apr sources (latest released 1.4 version) available 

3) Go to the APU checkout directory and run

./buildconf --with-apr=/path/to/your/apr/1.4/sources

4) Run configure, make, make install

Check options using

./confgure -help

then run configure with your preferred options (or without any).

Finally as usual

make check
make install
