[jan@xciton-pc2 ~]$ pacman -Qi apache | grep -e Depend -e Version
Version : 2.2.2-5
Depends On : apr-util>=1.2.7 apr>=1.2.7 db expat gdbm glibc openssl zlib

Apache 2.2.2-5 is the version in current and has versioned dependencies on apr and apr-util.

Confirmed, this is a bug in pacman2. When examining the provides field of a package, pacman is honouring the provisio of the old apache package, which provided apr and apr-util. It should be looking at the new, to-be-installed apache package, which no longer provides apr and apr-util.

This is now fixed in pacman3.

As a workaround, until pacman3 is out, just install apr and apr-util manually.
