I have similar problem to the problem described here: http://grokbase.com/t/apache/dev/11cva03wa7/httpd-2-3-16-beta-make-install-fails
 
I have coreutils and libtools installed.
 
I have successfully compiled apr and apr-utils as follows:
 
# Build and install apr
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apr-httpd/
make
make install
 
# Build and install apr-util
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apr-util-httpd/ --with-apr=/usr/local/apr-httpd/ --with-openssl --with-crypto --with-ldap --with-expat=/usr
make
make install
 
# Configure httpd
./configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apr-httpd/ --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apr-util-httpd/ \
--with-mpm=prefork \
--enable-auth-basic \
--enable-auth-form \
--enable-authn-anon \
--enable-authn-dbm \
--enable-auth-digest \
--enable-authnz-ldap \
--enable-cern-meta \
--enable-dav \
--enable-dav-fs \
--enable-dbd \
--enable-deflate \
--enable-expires \
--enable-ext-filter \
--enable-headers \
--enable-info \
--enable-ldap \
--enable-mime-magic \
--enable-proxy \
--enable-rewrite \
--enable-session \
--enable-session-cookie \
--enable-session-crypto \
--enable-session-dbd \
--enable-speling \
--enable-ssl \
--enable-unique-id \
--enable-usertrack \
--enable-vhost-alias \
--enable-mods-shared="auth-basic auth-form authn_anon authn_dbm auth_digest authnz-ldap cern_meta dav dav_fs dbd deflate expires ext_filter headers info ldap mime_magic proxy rewrite session session-cookie session-crypto session-dbd ssl speling unique_id usertrack vhost_alias"
 
make is successful.
 
make install fails with this error:
