Appropriate configure options or hints would be nice. Which --options
do I need to set?

No - I need ./configure options. This happens before 'make install'.
The makefile is generated from configure.

If I'm abjectly wrong here, I apologise, but my problems start before
even attempting 'make build'

If the copy/paste didn't make it clear enough, there are two versions
of apxs to choose from,

1) the host one. (here)
2) the target one. (there)

Both refer to their own 'local' one.

Cross compilation requires a third one: 'run here, but act as if
you're running there.'

How do I (a) generate this third version (b) refer to it when compiling.

I'll still admit ignorance in this, and ask, 'am I still on the right
list here?'

Am I?
