It's something quite trivial, I'll post a patch to INSTALL to include the
sometimes needed extra info in section V.

For those who don't know: if apr-util links to a different version of
db than svn is linked to, the svn server will not be able to open a repos
(due to db incompatibility). So, at apache (or actually apr-util) configure/compile
time, you have to tell it where to find the db you want to use.

Yes. I also said that you should paste the relevant portions of your
httpd.conf (so we can spot problems with it). And more importantly, you
should tell did to cause the error to appear. Paste your last [few if
relevant] commands you gave on the commandline (ad verbatim).
