True, the installer do not alter the Apache directory but it will in the
future. Apache are using libdb40.dll in Subversion's Path (or another
libdb40.dll if it's found first) when you are using mod_dav_svn.so.

Did not the installer do that job? In that case: The installer may have a

I don't see that you have done anything wrong but I have had similar
problems by myself.
I had to uninstall the Apache service from the system and install it
again manually. This is what I did (and I don't know why it worked):

1. Stop your Apache service
2. Open a console window and cd to the apache.exe binary folder.
3. Uninstall the Apache _service_ from your from your system by
   running this command:
      apache -k uninstall
4. Install the service again by typing:
      apache -k install

It looks like Apache have trouble to run if it's installed as an service
before mod_dav_svn.so are included in your httpd.conf file. The
reinstalling of the service should fix this.

Good luck
