Work out whether the Apache you installed is prefork or worker MPM. If
prefork, then try installing apache2-prefork-dev. If worker MPM, try
installing apache2-threaded-dev. Don't install both.

These may not be the names, so check the Ubuntu sites if you still
can't work it out, unless someone else here can tell you. Either way,
you need the appropriate -dev package as it contains apxs and the
header files.
