I have compiled and installed both 1.3.x and 2.0.x on OSX without any 
problems doing ./configure without any special options.  Also  httpd

If you are going to compile apache, make sure you get the latest stable 
libtool version, I think its 1.4.2.  You might want to download fink 
from which has a bunch of open source 
utilities to download
