The choice of yes/no is automatic. See configure.in, line 351. We test if
Berkeley DB is present; if so, then we build ra_local.

Similar logic is possible for ra_dav.

ra_svn could also be opted-out, but it has zero dependencies, unlike
ra_local and ra_dav (the former being on Berkeley DB and the SVN FS
subsystem, the latter on Neon). One day, ra_svn could (and should?) depend
on an authentication subsystem, but who knows how that will pan out...
