The system also has the Debian Apache 2 installed, which happens to have
the almost the same set of dependencies (libprce being the only thing
missing), which looks sort of suspicious to me.

I'd like to understand how my build catches all the features the
distribution Apache already has. Does it have anything to do with
apr-config and apu-config?

And how can I prevent this unwanted configuration from happening?
