Can I pass this option to the subversion configure script? Or can I patch a
file such that this option is automatically passed to apr. Rebuilding apr
from inside the subversion directory does not fit in our software
installation scripts. On the other side a patch would be easy to use because
we already have a local patch for a subversion bug.
