These messages? OK, clarifying: There are 2 issues here. First line: You
need the Config::IniFiles perl module. The whole cpan2rpm / cpanflute2 issue
has been discussed recently here.
All the rest of the lines are saying that the upgrade of apache you are
trying to install is incompatible with your installed mod_perl, mod_python
and php packages. You may be able to simple uninstall those packages. If you
need to use them, you will need to locate or build versions compatible with
the new apache version.

This is really RPM standard operating procedure. If it is a barrier, it
isn't one erected by Subversion. It's also a vital skill for working with
Red Hat and similar distros.
