Yes, people have constant problems with BDB 4.1. None of these problems ever
showed up in subversion tests.

I suggest an alternative change.

Build just db42 and subversion.
Use the system everything-else.

This would use bdb's --with-uniquename support to be independent of the
system BDB, and a small hack to subversion's buildsystem to allow linking to
a BDB which is independent of apr-util.

Can you go into more detail on this point?
