Compiling issues : Apache headers not found – CentOS 6.x

I am trying to build libwurfl ( on CentOS. I have installed all the dependent libraries, but I am having issues with running configure for libwurfl. I am constantly getting issues with Apache headers not found issue.

If I use --with-apxs as shown below,

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs/


checking for apr.h... yes
checking httpd.h usability... no
checking httpd.h presence... no
checking for httpd.h... no
configure: error: Apache headers not found.

If I add --with-apache

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs/ --with-apache=/usr/include/httpd/ 


checking for apxs... no
checking apr.h usability... no
checking apr.h presence... no
checking for apr.h... no
configure: error: Apache Portable Runtime headers not found.

I see headers on both locations mentioned above.

Any pointers?
