You should pass --disable-mod-activation to subversion's configure
script. The build system is trying to modify your existing apache2
installation to load the mod_dav_svn you installed. I'd recommend
configuring apache manually instead. Allowing the Subversion build
to tweak configuration files in /etc is a bad idea, because it can
interfere with your existing Apache setup, and with the way your
distribution is managing /etc.
