Yes.

apr has a nasty habit of not making release very often at all. As a result,
subversion generally recommends you obtain apr and apr-util from the srclib
subdirectory of the latest apache httpd source tarball.

Note that 2.0.50 actually contains a bug in apr - it sets the sticky bit on
all newly created directories. There's a workaround in trunk, and cleared
for backport to 1.1.x, but the easiest interim solution may be to fix apr
(*before* compiling apr, apr-util, subversion).

Patch:
http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/apr/include/apr_file_info.h?r1=1.40.2.5&r2=1.40.2.6

Max.
