First, that combination needs some (tiny) code changes to compile, due
to some very minor changes to function args between apr/0.9 and 1.x.
It's simple enough, so long as you're not scared of C :-)
httpd-2.1.x compiles cleanly with apr-1.x.

I think you should rtfm a bit more.  Not all of those options make
very much sense, and enabling so many modules as static means that if
anything goes wrong, you've made the task of fixing it much harder.

That's a confusing error message - note the last line!  You should
build it against a  matching APR and APR-UTIL pair: theoretically
you can mix-and-match, but that would seem perverse unless you have
a compelling reason.

My configure works fine with:
