%define apache_sysconfdir %(%{apxs} -q SYSCONFDIR)
%define apache_includedir %(%{apxs} -q INCLUDEDIR)
%define apache_serverroot %(%{apxs} -q PREFIX)
%define apache_localstatedir %(%{apxs} -q LOCALSTATEDIR)
%define apache_mmn %(MMN=$(%{apxs} -q LIBEXECDIR)_MMN; test -x $MMN &&

This should help you out in a cleaner way, by using the proper variables.
(apache_sysconfdir is probably the most interesting for you at the
