Hm, I build it with following options on Linux, so I presume it skips 
this check:
          MP_APXS=/usr/bin/apxs \

After discussion with Joe Orton I think it would be better to use APR 
generation 1 even for httpd-2.4, so the proper fix would be to change 
apr_generation() method to return 1. Httpd-2.4 is still intended to be 
compiled with APR-1.x. Maybe in the past it was not like that and 
therefore we have that code there, but current state is like I said.

It's normally built together with httpd (since 'apxs' is part of httpd 
source code) and then include in Linux (Fedora/Debian/...) binary package.

I don't know what changed in apxs between 2.2 and 2.4. I would just try 
if it compiles with apr_generation() returning 1 and if it does, then 
you probably don't have to do anything.
