I believe libcurl is a lot more portable than APR. The "problem" with APR when
you use it for a simple thing like a HTTP library is that you get a huge set
of other portable functions that you don't necessarily need nor want.

But of course, the size of APR is not always an issue to people when more
applications use it since you may already have it installed and in use.

It is. There are numerous users who use libcurl in application with up to
hundreds or even thousands of simultanous threads.
