You can dynamically link to an APR library.

I've either used one or the other. I expect you can use both but
can't see any reason to.

apr is more frequently updated, has many other functions (e.g.
a complete memory pool manager), and works on a wider range of
platforms I believe (including Windows).

libdbi is simpler than APR to get used to, and has a smaller memory

You should also compare the choice of backends if you care about
