We were just waiting until APR worked with the autoconf 2.50
and libtool 1.4 releases. APR will continue to work with the
older autoconf/libtool but subversion needs the libtool fixes (badly).
After this patch is added, configuring subversion will require
the new versions of these tools, which is why we need our
own buildconf.sh script.

Yeah. The db package moved to the new autoconf in the 3.3.11 release.
Neon should be upgraded, but that is a separate issue since we
pull down an already configured tar ball for neon. Things should
just work (I know, you heard that one before). I just did a build
under Linux and it worked just fine.

Congrats! I did my first `svn checkout` today. It felt good, real good.
