Do you mean "configure: WARNING: Unrecognized options: --with-devrandom, --with-mysql" ?

This appears to be a new warning with autoconf 2.62, but the options still work correctly.
You can add --disable-option-checking to suppress these warnings.

urandom is now the default, see
The --with-devrandom option still works however.
You can double-check the selected device with:
   grep DEV_RANDOM srclib/apr/include/arch/unix/apr_private.h

Did you use ldd on /usr/local/apache/lib/apr-util-1/ ?

See the apr-util changes
If you want a static link you can use --disable-util-dso
