This one is benign.  Apache passes all your options to the apr, apr-util, and
httpd configures.

Prior to autoconf 2.62 any unrecognized options were silently ignored, and
Apache counted on this 
behavior.  Starting with 2.62 each configure complains about the options it
doesn't understand.


You can quiet these messages with the --disable-option-checking switch.

Definitely a separate issue.   Do you have r+w access to /usr/local/... ?
