I solved this by adding the follwing option:

This libaprutil is the culprit. As said in another post on this thread,
there is a Debian Apache 2 with bells and whistles on the system. This
depends on libaprutil. In turn, libaprutil depends on lots of other
stuff, like LDAP, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and what have you.

When configuring my Apache 2, the existing libaprutil is found and used
by default. So all those dependencies are acquired.

Using --with-included-apr (which might also make sense as the default),
the existing libaprutil is ignored, and no unwanted dependencies are
