Didn't realize you were having that many problems. I'm currently using
most of the SuSE packages on 9.1. The exception is neon... IIRC, neon's
all the way back at 0.24.4. :-/ So, I downloaded neon from webdav.org,
untarred it into /usr/local/src, and did the following:

  ./configure --with-expat --with-ssl --enable-shared
  make
  make install

Then I downloaded the Subversion tarball, untarred it into /usr/local/src,
and ran:

  ./configure --with-zlib --with-swig --with-ssl \
    --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs2 --with-apr=/usr/bin/apr-config \
    --with-apr-util=/usr/bin/apu-config --with-neon=/usr/local
  make
  make swig-py
  make install
  make install-swig-py

In the past, I've built Apache2 from scratch as well, and just used the
following to make and install it:
  ./configure --enable-mods-shared=all
  make
  make install

If you build you're own Apache, you need to do it before you build
Subversion, and then point Subversion to the installed libraries using
the --with-apr and --with-apr-util.

It looks like a lot, but it really isn't. I've been building this stuff
for several years now, and have only hit minor problems here and there.
In those cases, it was mostly libtool giving me a headache... it would
pick up the dependencies of the SuSE installed Apache, but would actually
link against the correct ones. In the end, it caused my libraries to be
linked against both expat and xml2. Things should run pretty smooth on
SuSE 9.1 though.

If you get brave enough to try again, I'm more than willing to walk you
through the process.
