Hi MJ,

I'm not familiar with the SUSE packaging for apache, but in Debian apxs 
(called apxs2 for Apache 2.0) comes with the development packages - 
either apache2-perfork-dev or apache2-threaded-dev, depending on which 
mpm you are using. I suspect it would be similar on SUSE. These packages 
also contain the apache header files which you will need to compile
