The info above is a bit limited in diagnosing the specifics of source code
you didn't share, and we aren't that great at divining the invisible, so two
thoughts for you; first build an httpd/apr/your module with CFLAGS -g -O0.
Sometimes you can only reproduce a crash with an optimized build, but
the -g flag always remains useful in this regard (and objcopy can strip
those symbols for general distribution.) I'm guessing the above was built
with '-g' but with some '-O', optimizing out some of the args that might
have been helpful.

Since we can't see above which command in your command_rec array
caused this segfault, we can see you had an invalid string element.

Line 546 of config.c tripped over your input. config.c:546 was trying to;
        dir = apr_pstrdup(tpool, cmd->name);

This suggests you added a command to the list without an actual char*
string name value.

Compare your command_rec list with the templates of the various
AP_INIT_* macros to ensure you provided valid initializers... only
static const array values. Ensure you NULL terminate that list.
