Hi Arno,

As noted in the automated analysis, shibboleth-sp2 uses ap_requires, and
specifically used the ability to parse the entire list of requires
directives.  It therefore needs substantial upstream redesign (and I
believe also will requiring dropping at least one feature).

I know that this work is currently in progress upstream, but I don't yet
know what the ETA is for a new release that will build with Apache 2.4.

Upstream also reads the packaging list, so they may be able to comment; if
not, I'll check on what the status of that work is.
