Compiling and Installing Apache HTTP Server 2.3.5-alpha - APR not found

I configured the Apache source tree for my particular platform and personal requirements. This is done using the script ./configure

----------------------------------------------------------
And I get this error message:

checking for chosen layout... Apache
checking for working mkdir -p... yes
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

Configuring Apache Portable Runtime library ...

checking for APR... no
configure: error: APR not found.  Please read the documentation.
----------------------------------------------------------
I install the APR (Apache Portable Runtime) in ubuntu 9.10 using synaptic (libapr1), but still same problem appears please help me.

Thanks

Did you tell configure where to look for apr?

--with-apr=DIR|FILE
    The Apache Portable Runtime (APR) is part of the httpd source distribution and will automatically be build together with the HTTP server. If you want to use an already installed APR instead you have to tell configure the path to the apr-config script. You may set the absolute path and name or the directory to the installed APR. apr-config must exist within this directory or the subdirectory bin.
