The right answer is for APR and SVN (and Apache) to use --enable-debug and
--enable-maintainer-mode. The WITH form is just wrong, and always has been.
APR used it because the autoconf script was written by an autoconf newbie;
we just copied it so that our command-line flag would be used by APR, too.
