I don't have any suggestions for the swig stuff since I don't
have any experience with it but...

I noticed that you break out the apr/apr-util libraries into
separate RPMs. This is fine if you want to install apr/apr-util
but not httpd. I wouldn't expect many applications like this so
I wouldn't break out the libapr* RPMs the way that you do.

If you follow the procedures described in an earlier message
(http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgId=189581)
you can create RPMs that are one for one replacements for the
current Red Hat RPMs (allowing for the apache to httpd name
change). People may find this easier and less confusing to
install into a stock Red Hat 7.x system.

Regardless, I appreciate your efforts to make it easier for
people to install and use Subversion.
