No but added the LoadModule pthread directive.

When you create an Apache 2.0.42, apr shared lib goes in /usr/lib, with
/usr/lib/ The includes goes in /usr/include/apache2.

When you're just build apr/apr-util, you should put them elsewhere to
avoid collision with the one which are provided by apache2.

If you don't do this, you'll have a strange situation where you have
to specify that you need apache2 to build apache 1.3 jk2 !

Also as I said the shared/static libs which came from apr 0.9.1 have
major version in name,,

I seems you could build Apache 2.0.42 against an allready
present APR shared lib, and trying it right now but I still wonder
why Apache 2.0.42 bundle an APR 0.9.2 where only APR 0.9.1 is available 
as release.

I agree, but it's something which should be fixed by Apache 2.0 and
APR teams, ie make Apache 2.0 use the latest APR release (0.9.1 or 0.9.2 ?).

May be JF could do something for us and also ask why the apr goes with
the -0 in names....
