I'm using your packages and the problem is that you only build a subset
of the apache modules that we are using. Now if I could use svnserver
and avoid messing with apache that would be fine. But because of APR
I cannot install svn at all and leave httpd2 as installed and working
from the 9.2 distro.

You don't have all the modules we need built and I don't have the time
to do the builds myself.

You are using BDB 4.1.?? I think using 4.2.?? is more stable.

So static link and avoid the reinstall-the-world problem! Or set a different
so version so that more then one libapr.so can be installed. What do you think?
