Encap packages and an ugly apr-utils/iconv hack

I'm working on some encaps [1] of subversion-1.4.0 [2]; so far I've
compiled successfully on several GNU/Linux platforms and AIX 5.3.

I am trying to make the package completely stand-alone; to do this I
had to do some really ugly hacks to the apr-util included in
subversion-deps-1.4.0; see [3] for the patches. It seems like
"--without-iconv" doesn't work. Is there a less ugly method of
compiling without an iconv dependency? Should I file a bug somewhere?

Is it possible to "build in" Berkeley DB support (like neon, apr, and
apr-util), or is that always an external dependency?

Once I get encaps built and tested on a large number of platfoms,
would there be an interest in putting a link to the binary packages /
profiles on the Subversion Packages [4] page?

At the moment there doesn't seem to be any AIX packages listed (except
sort of pkgsrc, but that requires a lot more setup than encap), and
they could also be useful on GNU/Linux platforms without the most
recent release (i.e. Debian Sarge). I even made a little logo [5] :-)
