It does. That error shouldn't be happening :-)

I can see the error occurring for the *second* command line. If you pass
--with-apr, then it better refer to a *configured* APR [build dir]. For the
first command line, it should have seen the bundled APR and reconfigured it.

If you start from a extraclean'd repo, yet used config.nice, and that had a
--with-apr switch in it, then I could see the broken behavior happening. But
according to your command line, you didn't use that...

So I'm confused as to why that is happening...

Well, I'll try it out as soon as I can get through a commit-that-won't-go
and a weird problem trying to "svn up" a directory.
