Sorry, just realized that you can't update to take advantage of my changes.
There was a bug in the handling of --with-apr=*. If you have autoconf 2.52
and libtool 1.4 could you apply the patch after my .sig, and run autconf
before trying to build. If you don't have autoconf, try --with-apr-includes
and --with-apr-libs separately.

I definitely want to fix the problem:) I just meant that if you are in a
hurry to get subversion working that is another alternative.
