Not such a good idea; this may break the default httpd and other tools
installed on macOS that use the system default APR and APR-Util.

Better to use --with-apr and --with-apr-util here; you'd also need
--with-apxs, to be on the safe side.

Note that Homebrew uses its own build of APR and APR-Util with
Subversion, and doesn't "brew link --force" them.
