Ah, O.K., I wasn't aware it came from APR. In that case I agree it
should be fixed there.

Well, apart from getting warnings about a missing Apache tree at
configure time, I have no idea what it takes to build an test
mod_dav_svn. I must have missed the post where you explained how it's done.

Would you mind adding a short note to the HACKING file about that? That
would get more people onto testing that code. I for one would run it
through a configure/build/check cycle on four platforms once in a while,
like I'm doing for the other parts of Subversion.

(I haven't posted reports for some time because nothing broke on
Solaris, HP-UX and AIX, and the Win32 build is still blocked waiting for
me to fix some APR bits ... :-()
