Bizarre. Never seen that one :-(

No... that error isn't related to permissions at all. No idea how you were
able to get that one.

Your Apache was compiled with AP_DEBUG and Subversion was compiled without
debug. You'll need to rebuild one of the two. I'd recommend Subversion:

$ ./config.nice --enable-maintainer-mode
$ make clean
$ make install

The config.nice script reruns configure with your previous switches and adds
the maintainer mode switch.

That should allow mod_dav_svn to load again, but I have no idea what's going
on with the PROPPATCH problem. After rebuilding, please try again and report
back if it keeps happening. We may be able to find out how that could
