Hmm, with a few reasonable steps from there:

- this should apply to all the in-tree dependencies.
   (Neon was an example, right?)
- if keeping dependencies opaque is good practice for Subversion, it is
for Apache as well.
- mod_dav_svn requires Apache's and Subversion's APR to be the same.

I think that would mean you should always compile apr and apr-util
separately from Subversion and Apache.
