I pointed out this apr-util/db problem a few days ago. Which means the
same thing happens in my environment, but that doesn't cause the tests
to fail. I assume this is because svn doesn't yet link against

$ ldd /usr/local/subversion/bin/svn | grep apr
        libapr.so.0 => /usr/local/subversion/lib/libapr.so.0 (0x401b1000)
$ apu-config --libs
 -ldb2 /home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/apr-util/xml/expat/lib/libexpat.la
$ ldd /usr/local/subversion/bin/svn | grep db
        libdb-4.0.so => /usr/local/subversion/lib/libdb-4.0.so (0x400be000)

Well, they will when subversion links against apr-util.

We need to fix it, but I don't think it makes the tests fail, not yet
