I agree - FWIW, if you are setting up a remote development server,
you will probably also be setting up OpenSSH which also uses OpenSSL.
Also, not all developers need SSL support when using Subversion...

In my experience, OpenSSL and ZLIB are fairly common requirements of
multiple developer tools, while APR and Neon are pretty much limited
to Subversion (unless you happen to be developing a web site...)
