The 2.0.40 tarball doesn't work for Subversion. The error codes in APR
changed a little while ago, and those are not incorporated into 2.0.40.
Thus, you end up with a mismatch of error codes between Apache and
Subversion (since the latter is built against a newer APR).

In essence, Subversion requires Apache 2.0.41-dev or later (-dev means that
it is between .40 and .41). Subversion also requires APR 0.9.1-dev or later
(the CVS version).

We have not (yet) put these requirements into our buildcheck or
configuration process, but will shortly. Now that APR is actually getting
versioned, then we can start relying on using those numbers to specify
minimum requirements.

And yes: I know this is the exact cause of the problem because it frustrated
me for about four hours over the weekend...
