Maybe. There was a comment somewhere that said it was working around
"libtool 1.3.5 bugs". And this patch will break the libtool 1.3.5
build.

Explicit references to .libs should never be necessary. So either there
were in fact libtool 1.3.5 bugs, or it was a problem with the build
system/libtool 1.3.5 interaction. In any case, these work-around hacks
are definitely part of the problem.

One possible fix for the install _might_ be to create a hacked,
subversion-specific version of apr/build/install.sh that moves back up
to the top-level directory before trying to install anything. I'll
experiment with that tonight.

In any case, I have a feeling that you guys are going to have to declare
libtool 1.4 the one-true-libtool for building subversion.
