Subversion 0.25.0 is a big change in that I'm now doing what Redhat is
(will be) doing. I ported their RAWHIDE httpd-2.0.45 to httpd-2.0.47.
They broke out APR/APR-UTIL into separate packages.

So the answer to your question is that you will have to either "rpm -Uvh
all-required-packages" at once or piecemeal them by using "--nodeps" to
temporarily ignore dependencies. If you do that you might have to "rpm -e
--nodeps package" temporarily until you get the other package installed
that fulfills those dependencies.

Does that help?
