Hmmm, have you tried to verify if this module is working because it
looks weird if the configure states that it will disable this module?

I think this message shouldn't be displayed if the options you quoted
above were seen by ./configure.

I added -lgdbm to src/Configuration.apaci and then it shows up correct
during configure.

Have you logs of your build?

I get this during compiling the modules:
gcc -c  -I../os/cygwin -I../include   -DCYGWIN -DNO_DBM_REWRITEMAP -DUSE_HSREGEX  -DSHARED_CORE -O2
obviously dbm_rewritemap is disabled, I guess it will not work if
the module is compiled like that!

And my libhttpd.dll is a little (50k!) smaller than your dll.
Does it depend on the versions of expat I'm using?

Your DLL (already stripped):
$ ls -l usr/libexec/libhttpd.dll
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Gerrit   Kein       289792 Jan  9 16:43 usr/libexec/libhttpd.dll*

$ cygcheck libhttpd.dll

My DLL (stripped):
-rwxr-xr-x    1 Gerrit   Kein       234496 Jan  9 16:42 /bin/libhttpd.dll

$ cygcheck src/libhttpd.dll

The modules are linked against the dll's:
Use -h to see help about each section
Found: .\mod_auth_dbm.dll

But I found no hint where expat-dll is linked with.

I suggest we add -lgdbm to EXTRA_LIBS in src/Configuration.apaci so
mod_auth_dbm gets compiled correct.
